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.
