Unusual weather

I don't know if it's ever been documented, but I think it's possible also to have rain at the North Pole even in December or January.

EDIT: I found some weather data from last winter collected quite near 90N from November to February, and three times in that period the temperature reached about 0C.  It may not have rained, but it shows it's feasible that it could happen from time to time even in mid-winter.

Interesting situation on Sunday.  A low of ~940 hPa near Iceland and highs of ~1045 hPa to the east and south, > 100 hPa difference.  This will dump a huge amount of rain over Svalbard, even beyond 80N, and possibly large amount of snow in SE Norway, and perhaps give hurricane winds for western Norway.

The most snow in February in many parts of Oslo for decades.  My ultrasound sensor 15 meters behind my house reads 132 cm today.  More snow expected in a couple of days.  I've been shovelling a lot lately.

An interesting rescue story in really extreme weather and pretty incredible footage.  In Norwegian, so here's a summary: One guy and two dogs are surprised by hurricane winds (mid January, at 70N), but the ground is rocky and digging a snow cave for shelter proves difficult. Where he finds sufficient snow, the wind rips the cave apart and he basically has no shelter.  The hurricane persists and the next day he's becoming weak and he triggers his emergency beacon.  Rescuers are unable to reach him because snowmobiles are simply blown away or engines stop because the snow penetrates everything.  They eventually reach his position the day after, but even though they're only a few meters away, it takes another hour for them to find him because there is zero visibility.  He only suffers a frostbitten hand and a scar in his face that he got when the rescuers removed the huge ice block(!) that had formed in his beard.
