In Oslo, a temperature of 15.9 degrees Celsius was the highest measured in the capital in November since records began in the late 1800s, according to Met Norway.
Drammen, close to Oslo but part of neighbouring county Viken, saw an even balmier 17.4 degrees Celsius, which is a record for the county.
Yesterday, a temperature of 16.1 degrees meanwhile set a record in Smøla, a municipality in Møre og Romsdal county on the country’s west coast.
The record warm temperatures follow an unusually wet October in the southern and eastern parts of Norway, news wire NTB writes. Last month saw more October rain in Oslo than Bergen (which is on the west coast) for the first time in 27 years.
