Climate change is so very real. We all are already experiencing it. And it only gets more bizarre. Its January and one would have expected Norway to be deadly cold, right?
Wrong. Western Norway at this time of the year is usually below freezing. But it has been having days of summer – instead of skiing, people are actually on the beach! It recorded the highest temperature of 19C - more than 25C above the monthly average, in the village of Sunndalsora.
The main cause for the record-breaking temperatures at this particular site was from a foehn wind, which are warm gusts that occur on the downwind side of mountain ranges.
As we develop and grow, the earth is indeed becoming a stranger place with weather all around being turned on its head.
