  1. Warning sign

    Ongoing: Landslide risk. Caution level: yellow (Vestlandet)

    Heavy rain is expected. The amount of water in the soil is significant. Steep slopes, as well as streams and river with high discharge are particularly exposed. The issued warning is in the upper part of the warning level. Read the full forecast on Varsom.no.

    ConsequencesSituation that requires vigilance and may cause local damages

    InstructionsKeep away from steep slopes, as well as streams and rivers with high discharge. Cleaning of drainage paths and culverts are recommended. Stay updated on the latest weather developement and hydrological situation. Follow the weather forecast and radar at yr.no, and updates on varsom.no. Read more at NVE

  2. Warning sign

    Ongoing: Flood risk. Caution level: yellow (Vestlandet, Trøndelag og Nordland)

    Large amounts of precipitation are expected in the warning area. Rising temperatures will lead to snow melting. Heavy rain will increase water discharge in rivers. Hydropower production will in some cases act as flood control, and therefore the issued warning will not necessarily apply to all regulated waterways. Read the full forecast on Varsom.no.

    ConsequencesSituation that requires vigilance and may cause local damages

    InstructionsStay informed on the development of the weather and the hydrological situation by following the weather forecast and weather radar, as well as updates on varsom.no. Secure and/or move assets away from vulnerable areas (car, caravan along rivers/streams, basements). Cleaning of drainage paths and culverts is recommended. Keep away from rivers/streams with high flow. Read more at NVE

Weather radar for Western Norway

The map shows where precipitation (rain, sleet, snow etc) falls, the colour giving an indication of the amount.

Wait a moment, loading images...

By emitting radar waves the radar registers how precipitation moves . It will then receive echoes if the waves hit precipitation particles. The animation shows precipitation during the last hours, the last picture in the sequence being the most recent. The time at which it was taken is given (in local time) in the upper right corner.

Under certain conditions the radar waves are deflected and hit the ground instead, giving false echoes. False echoes can be recognised by being fairly motionless.
