Norway temps to rise, weathermen say. The current noticeably very cold general spell in Norway looks as though it will be over during the weekend, according to the forecasters. “Temperatures will rise with winds from the south,” said Jon Smits, on-duty Norway Met Office forecaster to The Foreigner earlier this morning, adding that there may be occasional gales in coastal and mountain areas. According to him, southern Norway will see precipitation periods of snow/sleet, turning to rain. There will be some scattered snow showers from time to time in the north.

“Temperatures will rise with winds from the south,” said Jon Smits, on-duty Norway Met Office forecaster to The Foreigner earlier this morning, adding that there may be occasional gales in coastal and mountain areas.

According to him, southern Norway will see precipitation periods of snow/sleet, turning to rain. There will be some scattered snow showers from time to time in the north.

“The greatest temperature differences will be in southern and south-western parts, really, where they will rise to around zero degrees Celsius around the coast,” he said.

“Inland temperatures will increase from minus 20 or 25 degrees Celsius to about minus five.”

The Foreigner has for a period now been publishing 4am temperatures for the coldest and sometimes warmest places in Norway under the 'News in Brief' section around 7am in the morning.

Røros, a very pleasant place, has mostly led the freezing field.

“It was almost minus 24 Celsius there at about 9am after rising briefly to minus 20”, explained Mr Smits, “but Finse around the Bergen railway line beat Røros by two degrees, at minus 26.”

These temperatures were warmer than during the night, however.

“Leireflaten, a small place, saw minus 30 degrees Celsius,” said Mr Smits.

Where is Leireflaten?

“Oh, just drive North of Lillehammer to about the middle of Gudbrandsdalen valley and then turn left to Jotunheimen,” he concluded.
