Because of Norway’s high latitude, there are large seasonal variations in daylight. The climate of Norway is much milder than that of most other regions as far north. Especially along the country’s west coast. Gulf Stream keeps nearly all the seaports ice-free, even in the northern regions. During winter, Norway’s inland regions are colder than the coast. The winter night sky often becomes enriched with brilliant displays of aurora borealis or northern lights. The country lies in the path of the North Atlantic cyclones. These bring frequent changes in weather. Western Norway has a marine climate, with cool summers and mild winters. Eastern Norway, sheltered by the mountains, has an inland climate with warm summers and cold winters. Snow covers the ground at least three months a year. Northern Norway lies in the Land of the Midnight Sun. It has continuous daylight during part of the summer. The number of days of continuous daylight increases as one goes farther north. Norway has similar periods of continuous darkness in winter.
