Oslo on Wednesday enjoyed the warmest November day since 1899, with temperatures at midday hitting a high of 14.4 degrees in the suburb of Bærum.
"It's not often we have such high temperatures," said Nina Larsgård, a government meteorologist. "Temperatures today have been really something." 
According to Norway's Meteorological Institute, temperatures shot up by 10 degrees within one hour, as a wave of hot air dropped in over the mountains. 
The last time a recording higher than 13.7 degrees was recorded at Oslo's main weather station at Blindern was in 1899.
