Get your skis on whilst you can.



The weatherman says its going to be mixed this Easter. Yesterday’s snow and sleet is no indication of things to come.

“Up around Haukelifjell we expect stiff breezes and strong gales, with winds between 15 and 20 metres per second. During the day temperatures will be in the plus, but below freezing at night,” Geir Ottar Fagerlid at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute tells The Foreigner.

Things look slightly different for skiers in Sirdal. Fagerlid forecasts easterly breezes up to 12 m/s in exposed places lower down.

“But there could be strong gales up to 20 metres per second at the top. Temperatures will be between +5 and +7 during the day, sinking to between +2 and +4 at night.”

For those staying around the coast the weather will be reasonably stable. There’ll be rainy periods, South South Westerly winds up to 12 metres per second, with snow over 400-600 metres.

“At the end of Easter, a low pressure area will be coming in from the Southeast.  Easter Monday will see rainy periods with periods of stiff breezes and strong gales,” he says.

Fagerlid recommends people follow the weather closely.
