Lillehammer 1994: An Olympic ClimatologyEntry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00488
Abstract: Lillehammer 1994: An Olympic Climatology is a technical report available from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). This report gives a climatological description of Lillehammer, Norway, with emphasis on winter conditions. Lillehammer is in a mountainous northern location with limited winter sunlight. Very similar to parts of the North American Pacific Northwest, Lillehammer winter weather is ... variable because of the very different western and eastern air masses that move over the area. Stormy weather blowing in from the west over the North Atlantic is the main weathermaker. As these storms move ashore at the Norwegian coast, temperatures are warmer than they would ordinarily be because of the influence of the Gulf Stream in the North Atlantic. Often there is coastal rain and mountain snow. At Lillehammer, the intervening mountains reduce both storminess and temperature. Winds are generally light, and light snowfall is frequent. There is a cold continental air mass that usually stays east of Norway. But occasionally this air mass moves west, and Lillehammer has episodes of bright sunlight and below-zero temperatures.
Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
