Snow in February?

Hello everyone! So, my husband and I will be traveling to Tromso and to Mestervik in February and we've been checking the weather but so far there is no snow. Is this normal? Do you think it is likely they will get snow in the near future? We were hoping to do some skiing or dogsledding but I suppose neither are really possible without snow. Any information would be great! Thank you in advance!

It has not been snowing for quite some time now and the skies have been clear on many days - an ideal situation for observing the northern lights. But it is rather unusual as a whole that it does not snow or rain for 4 weeks on end. I expect the situation will change by February.

There is snow on the ground in certain areas, but not much.


If you choose a dog sledding provider in the Lyngen area, there will be snow.
