    Default Trondheim area 2017

    News and posts from the Trondheim fjord rivers, mainly. That usually means Orkla, Gaula, Nidelva and Stjørdalselva. The two other, big rivers (Verdal and Steinkjer) will probably get much less coverage since they have low stocks/ are lightly fished.

    Some post regarding the rivers on the Fosen peninsula, the big rivers in the big fjords south/west of Trondheim (Surna, Driva, Eira and Rauma) and around the Namsen fjord might also occur.
    Pierre03, Finnjoki and LN like this.

    Default Snow/weather so far this winter

    We have had a lot of rain, a lot of snow and a lot of mild weather. Which means that the reservoirs in December saw a rise like what we see during the spring thaw. And the rivers have been open, with a lot of vwater at times. Water was let down the upper Nid from the Selbu lake in 100s of m3/s mid december, something which has not happened for decades. And some of the Orkla reservoirs have risen a lot in December - strange weather. Something to expect when the north atlantic is warmer than usual, and has much less ice coverage than usual I suspect.

    Just now we're having a lot of "good ol' white fluffy", but it remains to be seen how long it takes before we're back to a mild south/west again. As for now, we just have to enjoy it !

    Mid March now - looking at ski slope cams Vassfjellet and Are) - you appear to have more snow than the last couple of years?
    What are your thoughts Ursus?

    No, less. It has been unusually both warm and wet at times. but we never know. A week with a humid northwest, and all The snow we want is in place. but for now, little snow in most areas.

    I've been tracking the weather on the Kola at the Umba station carefully the past couple of months and they seem to be experiencing something similar. Certainly a great deal of snow and, in the past week and for the next few days at least it will be above freezing. That is very unusual this early in the year. Warm westerly winds are the cause.

    The next 5 weeks will determine the seasons prospects on the southern kola rivers at least. An early thaw and despite the depth of snow and ice this year it will run off quickly and the rivers will be low and very warm again very early on.

    This is the Umba weather station page https://www.wunderground.com/global/stations/22324.html
