Yesterday we saw the satellite image of the UK, buried under snow for the second time in 2010, see UK Covered in snow, for the second winter. And we’ve seen and heard the reports about the impact snow is having in the UK and in Europe. Now let’s have alook at some cold records.
Translated from http://www.yr.no/english/1.7405789 yr.no is the joint online weather service from the Norwegian Meteorological Institute and the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation.
Norway got over a hundred new records in November.
Cold, colder, coldest. Unless you remember back to the year 1919, November 2010 is definitely the “coldest.”
The whole country is in the freezer
In the middle of November, it was extremely cold in many parts of the country, “says Hans Olav Hygen.
It is not uncommon for parts of the country to stand out when meteorologists summarize the weather of the past. This time the whole of Norway that stands out.
“It is so special that large areas are cold at once. It has simply been an unusual situation that has pumped cold air into the country, “said Hygen.
On the whole, Norway has therefore experienced the coldest month of November since 1919, with the full 3.57 degrees below the normal level. Because the norm is regarded as cold , this is a very big difference!
In many parts of the country, this is the coldest November in living memory, “commented Hygen.
Of the various regions is the Trøndelag and western that stands out the most:
|Region||Deviations from the norm|
Norwegian November stats published today showing 93 of 200 national stations setting record lows (average or absolute) for November.
A station like Utsira, in the middle of the Gulf current, had a min low of -6.2 beating the 1890 record of -5.6
