Spain, look, it's snowing!

Raul and the other Spanish soccer stars woke up to snow in Oslo Tuesday. And there is more on its way during the day.

What the Spanish players feared the most just happened: just before 9 a.m. big, fluffy snowflakes started to fall from the dark sky over the Norwegian capital. Norwegian soccer supporters are thrilled.

“We are thrilled that it’s snowing,” proclaimed Siv Hamre and Linn Hellum from Oslo. “Of course, it’s good. We now have a little bigger chance of beating Spain.”

The cold and snow are allegedly the things Spain fear the most before Wednesday’s important game at Ullevaal. Norway lost 2-1 against Spain in Valencia on Saturday, though, after a particularly good game. There is much more than just another game at stake tomorrow; the teams are fighting for a chance to show what they are made of in the European Soccer Championship next year.

According to Erik Hagemark, meteorologist at the Storm Weather Centre, there is more participation in its way, but the snow will turn into rain.

“It will probably turn into rain during the day,” Hagemark said. “The participation will probably stop this evening, and the temperature will probably be around zero (degrees Celsius).”

No more help from the weather gods

Unfortunately for Norwegian soccer supporters, Hagemark can not promise any more weather during the game.

“It appears as if it’s going to be about 4 degrees and no participation at the beginning of the game,” Hagemark concluded.

So, it appears as if Norway will not get any help from the snow this time around¿
