Climate

The city is located on a peninsula on the southwest coast of Norway. The climate is maritime mild temperate and rather windy, with all monthly temperature averages above freezing, and precipitation 1180 mm/year. Summers are pleasant and lowland areas in and around Stavanger have the longest growing season in Norway. However, summer temperatures are much cooler than those found further inland on the Scandinavian peninsula, even in more northerly areas. In contrast, winter temperatures are much milder than those in Oslo and Stockholm for example.

Talking about the weather in the company or at a party for people in Stavanger does not mean that there is nothing to talk about anymore. The weather here is changeable and unpredictable. The blue sky with a shining bright sun is suddenly replaced by gray clouds and a strong gusty sea wind. The heavy torrential rain ends and, in the glow of gray clouds, the ray of the sun lights the rainbow all over the sky. Of course weather affects the lives of citizens. In bad weather, it is better not to go out into the sea and not to go to the mountains. In the storm, ferry crossings are closed. In the mountains, a lot of snow falls and the danger of mudflow and flooding increases. So knowing the weather forecast in Stavanger is not just idle curiosity.
