Tonight is a very hot night in Oslo. With 30C at 20.30CET (8.30pm) local time. It is hot. Especially since the sun will be up for another 2 hours and sunshine until the sun comes back at around 4 in the morning.
A very Hot weekend ahead in Oslo!
It might seem a bit odd to see so many articles about the weather but Norwegians love to talk about the weather. When we had about 32C during this day and now its still hot we needed to document it. Oslo is so far north that it is so easy for the cold winds from the north pole to reach our capital. But once, twice or even more the winds from the south bring some really needed heat to our region.
Not only Oslo got high temperatures in Norway. Also, many of our other bigger cities got their records smashed today. Bergen never had a warmer day for a very very long time. Also, the heat is spreading upwards to Trondheim and it even reaches Bodø in the northern parts of the country.
Sunset is late during the Summertime
Because of the white nights in Oslo. Such heatwave like this is especially difficult for tourists coming to our capital. The sun is up until late. Do not expect to see a normal night at 18, 20 or even 22 in the evening. By midnight the sunshine is at its weakest but then again around 1.30 (1.30am) it is strong again and by 4 (4 am)in the morning sun is already waking up.
When we have temps like this during a heatwave like now. Then when it is around 23C during the morning you know that it is going to be a hot day. In Oslo, the hottest time of the day is not in the middle of the day. No! Don’t be tricked by the weather forecasts. Because they tell what the temp is at around 14.00 (2 pm). The hottest temps in our capital are between 18.00 (6 pm) and 21.00 (9 pm) in the summertime.
The heatwave this time will last until 29th of July 2019 when forecasts say that night to Tuesday the temps will drop to as low as 16C. So, be aware!
