Extreme weather warning

According to the Norwegian and Finnish Weather services, we are expecting extreme weather in the west and north west of Fenno Scandinavia today. In fact it already started last night with a dramatic increase in the wind.

KAIRA was checked at 20:00 local time last night and also again this morning. The report has yet to be posted. Additionally, we will attempt to cross the mountain passes into Norway in order to get our visiting observer to Tromsø airport for an outbound flight. Whether the passes remain open and whether the flights remain operational remains to be seen.

Current status: high winds and heavy snow.
