Summer heat: The reason why certain places almost always get warmer than others depends a lot on local topography, climate researcher Hans Olav Hygen at the Meteorological Institute tells Dagbladet.

– Where there is a typical south-facing exposure, and preferably also slightly closed in, so that there is not a lot of transport of the air, there is often high local heating, says Hygen to the newspaper.

Etne is a place that often ranks high on the list when it’s warm, he says.

– Some places are getting hot now, and Etne is a place that gets relatively hot in summer. The same applies to Sauda and Voss, she says.

More days of summer

We may get even higher temperatures in the next couple of days. Currently, the forecast shows Friday as the warmest day.

There will also be more clouds in the sky from Friday before the temperatures on Saturday and Sunday drop below 20 degrees.

Next week the temperatures will drop to a more normal level again and we will eventually get more rain and showers.
