Tem­pe­ra­tu­re records in Spits­ber­gen

While cen­tral and eas­tern Euro­pe are suf­fe­ring from seve­re cold, tem­pe­ra­tures in Spits­ber­gen are hig­her than ever mea­su­red in Febru­ary. Mea­su­ring was star­ted in 1975. Lon­gye­ar­by­en air­port had 7 degrees cen­ti­gra­de abo­ve free­zing, exact­ly 1 degree hig­her than the pre­vious record for Febru­ary (mea­su­red 17.2.2005).

Also Sveagru­va has the doubtful honour to pre­sent a new record, amoun­ting to 6.5 degrees, or 1.3 degrees hig­her than pre­vious­ly (5.2 degrees on 22.2.2006). Also the other sta­ti­ons in Ny Åle­sund and on Hopen and Bear Island have tem­pe­ra­tures abo­ve free­zing.

Towards the weekend the mer­cu­ry is expec­ted to drop well below zero again.
