Tromsø enjoys a tempered climate due to
North Atlantic Current that extends
Gulf stream to Northern Europe. However, being located in the sub-arctic, the tempeatures are in general low by summer standards most other places. The
average temperatures thus
ranges from from -4.4 °C in the coldest month of
February to 11.8 °C in the warmest month of July.
In July, temperatures can be expected to vary from 5°C
to above 20°C, and may include rain showers, though they
are in general not very heavy. Warm clothes
are thus recommended for most travelers. Perhaps as important as warm clothing is clothing that is fairly wind proof. But bring also summer
clothing, should the weather turn out to be favorable.
