Breaks record set in 1941, before most of this site’s readers were born.
In April, temperatures in northern Europe ran far ahead of normal. In Norway in the second half of the month on some days the average daily temperature exceeded average long-term values by 8-10 degrees. And from April 22 to 28 the maximum temperature set daily records, rising to 21:23 degrees.
But at the beginning of May, the weather rolled back a couple of months. On May 6, the daily average was 5 degrees below normal and set new cold records.
At the Norwegian Trondheim Airport, the temperature dropped to -2.5 C, leaving behind the previous record of -2.2 C set in 1941.
The cold in the western Scandinavian Peninsula will continue in coming days.
