DISCUSSION: As a strengthening low pressure system moved inland from the northeastern Atlantic Ocean, countries including (but not limited to) Norway felt the impacts from this low pressure system in the form of a sizeable snowstorm. As clearly shown in the video above, this snowstorm had legitimate impacts on the timeliness of departures and arrivals out of and into Oslo International Airport located in Oslo, Norway! Though this is not entirely uncommon in this part of the world by this time of year, it still goes to show how quickly changes in weather conditions at a busy international airport can delay and/or sometimes even halt travel all-together (which is typically dependent upon the exact severity of the weather conditions in place at any given point in time). That being said, the combination of heavy snow and blustery conditions led to hazardous and/or possibly even near-impossible travel by ground and air at many points during the course of this most recent snowstorm which got underway as of earlier this afternoon/evening (local time). As always, when faced with the hazards of travel (of any kind) during or close to the height of a winter storm, always do your best to avoid travelling until conditions have improved substantially so as to avoid any unnecessary endangerment of yours' or other people's lives.
