Winter came to Norway and Sweden very early, snow in the north (Tmax below 0°C), frosts in the south (Folldal-Fredheim -8,6°C, Latnivaara -5,2°C)!

In the last 2 articles, we warned before the extreme Arctic cold blast, which hit at the weekend Scandinavia /; Simultaneously we were informed about record-breaking temperatures in southern Norway up to +28,3°C before the arrival of a cold front.

It´s the weekend and parts of Norway and Sweden already report extremely strong frosts and heavy snowfall.

While heavy snowfall with dozens of centimeters of snow in higher elevated basins and valleys and up to 10 cm in low-situated regions in northern and north-central Norway and northern Sweden was observed, frosts are the strongest in southern Norway and in leeward in northern Sweden.

Frosts appeared in central Norway, central Sweden, and southern Sweden, too, while Finland is for severe frosts only waiting.
