How cold is it in Oslo during December?

It's extremely cold in Oslo during December. The temperature tops out at around -2℃ during the day, falling away to -5℃ at night. Yikes! The UV index will be low at this time of year, so not something to worry about. However, if you're going to be outside for long periods it's always a good idea to apply a small amount of sunscreen to exposed skin.

Does it snow in Oslo during December?

Yes, although it doesn't snow as much as you might expect. That said, the subzero temperatures will mean that any snow that does fall will accumulate, particularly on untreated ground. It's worth checking the local forecast a few days before you leave home so that you can pack appropriate footwear and clothing.

Let me take you back... Black Friday 2017: Ryanair (gulp!) - attempting to claw back a little dignity after their monumental flights cock-up...
