Red Bull Ragnarok 2011 - Forecast 02 April

carl1

Forecast Ragnarok - valid from 02/04 till 03/04/2011

General Situation
Today Central Norway is positioned in the broad warm sector of a frontal system that extends from Spain up to Finland. This means pretty nice but warm weather. Tonight there is the passage of the cold front behind which it is again clearer and colder for tomorrow. Unfortunately the high pressure develops in the rea of that cold front and as a result the wind drops away completely!
