Residents in Norway have been reeling from the country's coldest summer in nearly 30 to 60 years. Early in July, more than 10 m (32 feet) of snow accumulated in parts of the southern region, which was unprecedented for this time of the year.
According to state meteorologists, Oslo has recorded an average temperature of just 14.7 °C (58.5 °F) this month, which was the coldest in nearly 30 years.
Meanwhile, Bergen's average has been even colder at 12.8 °C (55 °F). Trondheim hit 12.1 °C (53.8 °F), the coldest for almost 60 years.
In Oslo, we have to go back to 1993 to find such low average temperatures as weve had this summer, and back to 1996 in Bergen. In Trondheim, we have to go all the way back to 1962," state meteorologist Gunnar Livik confirmed.
Snow has also been covering the mountains, with Folldall hitting a below-freezing temperature of -4 °C (24.8 °F).
It was warm in June when the summer season started, but going into July, it has been unusually cold in Norway.
The country entered the month with unprecedented accumulated snow of more than 10 m (32 feet) in parts of the southern region.
"We have not had such [heavy] snowfall as this year," said Knut Kinne, watercourse technical manager at BKK who conducted clearing operations in the mountains.
"We had a clear change in the weather at the end of June," Livik continued. "July has been a cold month with lots of unstable weather."

If the Norway Women’s Beach Volleyball Team needs warming, I’m available.
This Global Warming has to stop or we’ll all freeze to death (with a banjo on my knee).
It they keep their maks on, they should be warm enough. /s
No BS, I read that sun spots are at an all time low. Better start chopping and stacking your firewood. If Trump wins and we experience a worldwide epic freeze hitherto not seen, the frozen corpses’ll be his fault.
Needs more lutefisk...
Hmm...it’s cooler but nobody wants to admit it? I call them climate change deniers.
“If the Norway Womens Beach Volleyball Team needs warming, Im available.”
Cool weather makes them on point.
Subtle, but funny...
I see that peaceful protesters in Portland, Oregon, and other cities around these United States of America find the weather so intolerably cold that they simply must start large dumpster fires or even use courthouses as kindling to stay warm enough to survive the bitter midsummer weather. They apparently do not have the technology or resources to keep warm at home. The fires obviously aren’t emitting enough carbon dioxide to trigger worries of global warming, which now stands vanquished and seriously reversed. Not even the leftist liberal Communists complain about that any more as they shiver in the piercing cold of the frostbitten July nights.
I am very aware of this stuff - we don't have air conditioning.
Global Warming is so yesterday.
Well, we here in northern Illinois are on track for one of our hottest summers on record.
In the meantime, Im enjoying our nice summer and my garden is, too.
Hotter than heck in the midAtlantic
Your point pointedly pointed out the point of points. Now, have a pint.
Okay, but this one's mine.
