Across the country, low pressure is on the line. Temperatures will also drop again, after rising slightly in a few places recently – such as Sunndalsøra in Møre and Romsdal, where 10.1 degrees was measured on Sunday.
– We don’t really see any clear signs of spring in forecasts now and ahead of Easter, said on-duty meteorologist Per Egil Haga at the Meteorological Institute to Dagbladet.
– So for those who crave spring, all you have to do is be patient. Maybe more layers.
There are some wet days in the south 🌧️🌨️ Our 5 stations have set a new March record for 24-hour rainfall. Additionally, Kjevik has broken the record from 1985.

Bad Easter news
In short, March is likely to be a rather cold month, he said.
Easter also seems unable to offer sunshine and warmth on the cabin walls.
– It seems that April will also start with mild spring weather in the south and north, said Haga, stressing that the forecast so far is uncertain.
– Winter weather type
However, for the coming week, they are more certain, and in the north there will still be winter conditions.
– There will be thunderstorms, which will mainly hit Troms and Finnmark with snowfall, meteorologists say.
Snowfall will start on Monday in Finnmark, before snowy weather finally arrives in Troms and northern Nordland.
– It’s going to be kind of cold weather.
Stuck in the tunnel:- Very uncomfortable
Further south, in Nordland, Trøndelag and Møre og Romsdal, we find those who are “getting the cheapest” in the coming week.
The temperature will also drop here, but it doesn’t look like there will be much rainfall.
– Maybe they can also see a little sun. If it doesn’t dominate, there could be a few hours of sunshine later in the week, meteorologists say.
Snow, sleet and rain
However, the rest of southern Norway will have to put up with the fact that it will be low pressure that will predominate – like rain on the coast, and like snow inland and at high altitudes.
– There won’t be much to see until sunrise, and it will be the mild type of weather with temperatures well above zero.
But while the weather will be characterized by low pressure, there are no storms to be seen.
– It doesn’t look like there’s going to be hefty low pressure with lots of wind and precipitation, but it looks like it’s going to get wet most days of the next week.
Since temperatures hover around zero, it is also difficult to say for sure where precipitation will come as rain and where it will come as snow.
– For example, in Oslo the odds are that it will rain or hail, but with temperatures close to zero, it’s not long before the precipitation takes a different form. There may only be one degree difference between rain or snow. But right now it doesn’t look like we’re going to get the big, heavy snowfall coming in the week we’ve left, Haga said.
If meteorologists are to take anything positive from the forecast for the coming weeks, skis don’t seem to have to be put on shelves anytime soon.
– For the ski lovers among us, there will be opportunities for good ski conditions over the Easter holidays, as the forecasts show now. all over the country. Joy for some, and pain for others, said Haga.
