Blizzard Conditions Felt Across Several Parts of Norway! (credit: Inger J Johansen via Meteo Europe)
DISCUSSION: As a strong low pressure system moved through some portions of northwestern Europe over the last couple of days, there were prolific impacts from this latest winter blast. As shown in the video above (which was captured by Inger J Johansen via Instagram), the combination of heavy falling and blowing snowfall coupled with the very strong winds created absolutely treacherous travel conditions. You will also note how the regional visibility evidently went down to at least a quarter mile visibility if not closer to zero miles at times. Thus, as always, be sure to respect the power of Mother Nature in situations where you find yourself stuck in the middle of a powerful winter storm. In this particular situation, there is no doubt that both regional and international airports (e.g., Oslo International Airport) were severely impacted by this latest blizzard as of just a few days ago since the maximum impacts from this winter storm were experienced back on Saturday afternoon.
