Oslo’s icy winters 1940/41

 & 1941/42 after occupation

The German occupation of Denmark and Norway during 1940 resulted in huge naval activities across the Skagerrak. It should therefore not come as a too big surprise that the winter 1940/41 at Oslo other nearby regions experienced a record January 1940 and one of the coldest winter ever recorded. The next winter the Germany ambush of the Soviet Union drove the D/J/F temperatures even lower.
