  • Sender: MET Norway
  • Danger increase: Thursday, January 13, 2022, kl.5:00 PM
  • Danger decrease: Friday, January 14, 2022, kl. 4:00 PM

Consequence

Loose items may be taken by the wind. Possibly cancelled departures for ferry, plane, or other transport. Bridges may be closed. Some journeys may have longer travel times. The power supply may be impacted, due to tree(s) falling over. Some roads may be closed due to trees or other objects in the road. Blowing snow at higher altitudes causes reduced visibility and possibly convoys and/or closed roads. The strong wind may cause locally high waves in fjords and lakes.

Advice

Secure loose objects. Avoid unnecessary journeys to exposed places. Follow advice and check status from transport operators. Check road reports (175.no). Be careful in coastal areas. In advance consider measures to limit damage.

Description

From Thursday afternoon to Friday afternoon locally strong wind gusts around 30-35 m/s are expected from northwest.
