The weather in Røros

Weather now

How is the temperature in August?

It can change a lot. Below you see a temperature graph from Røros airport August 2006.

Translation from Norwegian language:
Døgntemperatur = the mean temperature this day. (The red graph)
Døgnnedbør = the rain this day.
Nedbør = Rain   Lufttemperatur = Temperature in the air
The normal temperature in August is the border between the light yellow and light blue. In 2006 we see that the temperature was mostly warmer than normal
