We've looked at the most up-to-date weather data for Oslo, covering the last 12 years up to 2021, plus we've asked our team of travel bloggers for their first-hand experiences in order to answer the most frequently asked questions about Oslo weather in May.
What's the temperature like in Oslo during May?
The temperature reaches around 15℃ during the daytime in May, falling away to 5℃ at night. The UV index will be moderate at this time of year, so not something to worry about for the average person. However, if you're going to be outside for long periods it's worth wearing a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen and UV-blocking sunglasses. Remember that bright surfaces, such as water and sand increase UV exposure.
Does it snow in Oslo during May?
Possibly. There's a chance of snow during May but not as much as you might think. Check the local forecast before you leave home so that you can pack appropriate footwear and clothing.
Does it rain in Oslo during May?
On average, there will be 14 rainy days during the month, amounting to 37.8mm in total. That's much drier than we see in England during August, and therefore not something to be concerned about. There's a small chance that you'll catch a thunderstorm during your trip.

Norway. Vast pine forests, stunningly beautiful fjords, clear air and prosperous people. It's a winter wonderland and a summertime adventure playground. But if you're anything like me, Oslo has never featured especially highly on your 'bucket-list' (yes, I hate that phrase too!) As it turns out, that was exactly why I ended up choosing to go there! Let me take you back... Black Friday 2017: Ryanair (gulp!) - attempting to claw back a little dignity after their monumental flights cock-up...
