98% full moon rising over the airport at Stjørdal this evening!
The first rainbow of the year in the northern sky! The position of rainbows is highly seasonal here, but at this time when the sun is low over the southern horizon, rainbows are in the north.
Sea smoke drifting past this morning’s light show and a shot taken at dawn!
Intriguing patterns (oceanographic fronts / fjord dynamics) on the fjord
Today’s view shows an unusual cloud over the fjord ending in Hommelvik where it’s currently -10C, presumably caused by a jet of cold air falling from the mountains along the Homla river valley meeting the warmer air over the fjord?
A fantastic moon rise over Forbordsfjellet this evening…but it looks like it will cloud over before the eclipse in the morning!
Several days with snow showers and we now have the deepest snow for this time of year since 1986!
Under the thick layer of snow the soil is unfrozen, a good winter for the plants! Difficult to believe I harvested some 15 plants from the garden earlier this week!
It was a dramatic night here with high winds, snow, hail and there was even a thunderstorm at 4 am (not common in winter here!)….a Polar Low (polar lavtrykk).
It was stormy on the fjord today, it’s now 8 days since the last frost, and no frost in the 10 day forecast…. :(
It reached +8C here on New Year’s Eve!
