Climate and Average Weather in Norway
In Norway, the climate varies from the coastal to inland areas. In fact Norway has five different climate types. The coastal regions have a temperate oceanic climate with relatively mild winters and cooler summer months. Inland areas have a continental climate with colder winters, but a warmer summertime. Due to the warmth of the Gulf Stream Norway is a lot warmer than might be expected from its location.
Further north you will find a combination of three climate types. To a large extent, the interior has a cool continental climate, becoming a tundra climate and on some higher parts in central Norway an Alpine climate. In winter you can expect very low temperatures with even minus 40 degrees Celsius (-40 ° Fahrenheit). However the temperature changes quickly from day to day.
