How`s the weather up there in Tromso...?

Hello!

We are travelling to Tromso this Thursday and will stay there till Tuesday morning. I`m looking at the weather predictions and it doesn`t look good at all... Do you think we have the slightest chance of seeing the northern lights? We`ll have a car, so driving inland isn`t a problem if the weather is better there...

I guess I need just a bit of consolation... :)

The alternate rain and snow could make driving conditions difficult. But it could be drier inland.

Please, never trust a weather forecast here in the Arctic!!

It`s changing from minute to minute... so, it`s better to be here, and drive to the best weather..;)

Well ot course the weather forecast is a forecast and should naturally be taken with a grain of salt. On the other hand, it is the only guideline available, reliable or not. Our private joke is that the forecast is always accurate when bad weather is predicted. And anyway, a long term forecast is always just an educated guess. A 3 day forecast could be reasonably accurate, but when the weather is variable like now, one could always hope that they are horribly wrong. Anyway, have a nice trip whatever the weather.

I guess huskies will run, no matter the weather.

I`m so excited!

All activities goes, also in bad weather, the dogs too..;)

And if the weather forecast shows bad at the coast, it`s normally better at the country side, and vice versa...
