Anumber of snowfall records tumbled across Norway, particularly its northern region, over the weekend. According to state meteorologist Eirik Samuelsen, Northern Norway has been practically buried by snow all throughout the season. With more heavy snow expected later in the week, this season is likely to become Tromso’s snowiest.​

While people in the south enjoyed the cool weather in the past week, the residents in the north shivered through the cold and struggled with the heavy snow.

Official measurements in the northern municipality of Tromso said 30 cm (12 inches) settled in the area on Sunday alone, April 5, 2020.

There were huge local differences, however, saidSamuelsen. “Here where I live, on Kvaloya, it came in more than that.”

In Breivikeidet, Tromso, almost 1.2 m (4 feet) of snow had accumulated from Sunday to Monday, April 5 to 6. “I have never experienced so much snow in one day,” he added.

In Tromso, 6.5 m (21.3 feet) of snow has accumulated this season so far, the highest since the 1999-2000 winter season.

Blizzard conditions were felt across much of Iceland over the weekend. Up to 1.5 m (5 feet) of snow fell in one day, engulfing residential areas and vehicles, while very strong winds up to 111 km/h (69 mph) and near-zero visibility were reported on the coast.

In Hveragerdi, Southwest Iceland, many residents had to dig themselves out of their homes after ‘the largest snow they had ever seen in their town.’

Nearly 1.5 m (5 feet) of snow fell in one day, resulting in total whiteout conditions. In Sigluforder, North Iceland, cars were also buried in snow.

According to meteorologist Einar Sveinbjornsson at the Weather Watch, this was the most widespread severe weather event of the season.

“This is perhaps the worst weather, given how extensive it was and given how many territories it affected,” Sveinbjornsson said.

A powerful, slow-moving storm continues affecting parts of California on Monday, April 6, 2020, with significant mountain snow, heavy rain, and gusty winds. Up to 127 mm (5 inches) of rain fell in Santa Barbara County, causing localized flooding. A record rainfall of 28.4 mm (1.12 inches) was recorded in the Santa Barbara City, while Monterey saw 30.7 mm (1.21 inches) — which above its average monthly rainfall. Showers and thunderstorms are also forecast for the Midwest in the following days.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), an exceptionally deep upper-level low is predicted to linger near Southern California during the first half of the week, with the worst impacts to be felt on Monday.

Almost 60 cm (2 feet) of snow has fallen in the Sierra Nevada, with more expected through the week. Heavy snow continues to impact the San Gabriel and San Bernardo ranges as well.

“In addition, heavy rain is falling along the coastal range and in the valleys. The risk for flooding and flash flooding in some areas, particularly over burn scars, and runoff is possible in urbanized areas as well,” said NSW.
