Forget spring! Norway bracing for half a meter of snow

Up to 50 cm (almost two feet) in places.

Norway – 11 MAR 2019 – “Forget spring! Winter is back. Tomorrow comes the snow.”

Now a half meter of snow over southern Norway, announced Håvard Thorset, meteorologist at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.

Much of this will come in the middle of rush hour traffic. The worst will be the southern Norway and the capital.

Eastern Norway and Oslo will get some snow in the afternoon rush hour on Tuesday. The worst is expected Tuesday into Wednesday.

There can be around 20 cm of snow in the capital, says Thorset. It will cause major traffic problems.
