Heavy snowfalls expected for Norway this weekend / News / The Foreigner

Heavy snowfalls expected for Norway this weekend. Norwegian meteorologists predict more snow this weekend, meaning good news for skiers but perhaps not travelers. According to the Meteorological Institute, a low-pressure system coming in from Skagerak means another round of fresh snow is expected to cover the eastern part of the country tomorrow. Weathermen say 20 centimeters of fresh snow fell in eastern Norway yesterday, which caused problems for cars, trains, and planes.

According to the Meteorological Institute, a low-pressure system coming in from Skagerak means another round of fresh snow is expected to cover the eastern part of the country tomorrow.

Weathermen say 20 centimeters of fresh snow fell in eastern Norway yesterday, which caused problems for cars, trains, and planes.

“We expect more snow from the south on Saturday. There may be up to 10 centimeters of snow south of Oslo and slightly less in northern Østlandet. Some places may get more. Most snow is anticipated in counties in Agder”, on-duty meteorologist Bente Wahl at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute tells Aftenposten.

Vestlandet will see heavy, wet snow, with rain expected near the coast.
