Norway Recorded a Temperature Record
Yesterday in Sunndalsora, the air temperature was 25 degrees C higher than the average in January in Norway.
It is noted that this is a record high and also 25 degrees higher than the national average this month. “It’s a new record for warm weather here… People out in the streets in their T-shirts today,” said Mayor Rauma Yvonne Wold.
She herself even swam in the sea that day.
According to meteorologist Peter McAward, the previous January hight in Sunndalsora was +17.4 degrees C.
He believes that the reason for the extremely high temperature in the village is in its location: it is located on a slope, therefore it is often exposed to hairdryers – strong, gusty, warm and dry local winds blowing from the mountains to the valleys.
