Excessive snowfall in SW Norway, locally more than 100 cm until Tuesday Nov 14th

Impressive amounts of fresh snow are expected across the higher terrain of SW Norway through the next 4 days, until Tuesday Nov 14th. The current pattern suggests a deep trough and very deep cyclone will be situated almost stationary over the Norwegian sea, maintaining strong WSW mid-level flow across Norway which usually results in excessive orographic precipitation. With rather cold temperatures within the upper trough, conditions are favorable for snowfall across large area and the persistent flow should allow high snowfall sums. In particular for the higher terrain of SW Norway where some models are hinting at 100+ cm of fresh snow by Tuesday. Combined with strong winds, high snow drifts and dangerous driving conditions are expected as well.
