Whilst in Scandinavia there is hardly any snow at the sea level now. You need to go north of the arctic circle for that. Here in Oslo we had a decent amount of snow in November, but since Christmas the NAO has sent a steady stream of lows with more rain than snow and the snow is now all gone in lower elevations, below 3-400 meters. It's looking very much like the winters of 1989/90 and 1991/92, which were pretty unique in the 20th century. Today we've had about 40 mm of rain and the temperature is stuck at +4C.
I remember those winters really well, very little snow and very warm winters after a very cold fall. A solar maximum year in 1990 I think. Pinatubo erupted in 1992 I think?
