|Most of southern Norway was finally basking this week in the sunshine that never came during the traditional summer holidays in June and July. The good weather wasn't expected to last long, though. After state meteorologists had sifted through new data on Thursday afternoon, their forecast was clear: Sunday would bring colder temperatures and rain over most of the country. The rain was even predicted to fall as snow at elevations over 800 meters, according to meteorologist Haakon Melhuus."It will definitely be autumn-like weather," said Melhuus, who also predicted strong winds along with rain west of the mountains.|
Temperatures are due to fall from Thursday's 25C (77F) to anywhere from 8-15C (47-69C) on Sunday.
The weather was supposed to remain warm through Saturday, however, in the Oslo area. The west coast and the counties of Møre og Romsdal, Trøndelag and Helgeland were due for stormy weather.
Northern areas of the country should brace for rain, with snow over 500 meters.
