Spring in the North Cape = Snow, Sun, Rain, Clouds…

In May, the weather changes by the minute with temperatures slightly above freezing.  A fast-moving snow storm blows through coating all in white, but a half hour later the snow has melted on the streets and walkways.   Yes, this is May 5th in the North Cape:

  1. And there I was complaining about a cold spell here at 52 degrees North! The temperature has dropped below 10 degrees Celsius at night and hovers around twelve during the day! All the trees and shrubs are green, the swallows have returned and this morning we found a thrushes egg that had hatched. That’s me finished complaining, thanks, Kevin!

    Don’t you hate it when the snow melts!? Not that we ever get that much; norwegian levels would be a treat🙂
    Well, spring is here with us in North Wales now; it’s windy and it’s raining..🙂

    In London it’s all mixed up. One day rainy and cold, the next one sunny and warm. I love snow and I’m always enchanted when I see imagery with snow.🙂

      We were in Rome a week and a half ago at the weather was unpredictable as well, with rain several days, which is not so normal for May.But the warmer temperatures were wonderful🙂

        Wow Rome! That sounds great. Never been there. It’s always nice to get a bit of warm weather. 🙂

    Is it summer in this photo

      We don’t really have summer…. more like winter from October to May, spring from June to mid-August, and Autumn from mid-August to October. This photos was taken last week.

  5. In the Netherlands the weather is also so so messed up! Earlier today was sunny and so warm, now it seems that will start raining shortly😦 Norway is on my travel list…so want to see the fjords and the nothern lights🙂

      Sounds like many places in Europe have off and on weather this Spring. Hope you do come to Norway someday… lots of beautiful places to see and things to experience. If you come to see the Northern Lights, make sure you have a week, just in case the weather is stormy or cloudy.
