“Precipitation in southern parts will fall mainly as snow on Christmas Eve,” Ingrid Bentsen, on-duty Oslo Met Office forecaster tells The Foreigner.

According to her, winds will be mainly calm, with temperatures in the Oslo area down to about -3C or -4C.

“Northern parts will have good weather, with perhaps some snow around the Tromsø and Finnmark coast,” she says.

Whilst reindeer can look forward to temperatures they are adapted to, west Norway coastal residents are in for a disappointment on Christmas Eve, however.

“Temperatures will be about +5C, with rain and mainly calm winds,” states the forecaster.

For Christmas and Boxing Days, forecasters expect that the weather will be much the same except for those people living in northern areas, and not just at the coast.

“It will be colder, with a risk of snow there,” Ingrid Bentsen concludes.
