Near-record snowfall in Oslo

On the last day of January the depth of snow at the Meteorological Institute at Blindern in Oslo measured 52 centimetres, and it is 36 years since there was more snow in Oslo in January. The all time-record in modern times is 62 centimetres, and was measured in the winter of 1967. Also in 1968 there was more snow in January then this year, with 58 centimetres already on January 5th. -For the low-lands, this is a lot of snow this early in the year. Blindern is after all located only 94 centimetres above sea level, says weather expert Bern Lie to Aftenposten. However, at slightly higher altitude, at Tryvann, just above Holmennkollen, the record snow level was registered on April 1st 1951, at 302 centimetres! (Aftenposten) Rolleiv Solholm
