Another record falls to the foehn wind

I don’t have all the details on this one, or even the actual station involved in today’s reported highest January temperature in Norway in the BBC news. It occurred in the Rauma municipality of Norway which is on the western coast amongst the Kyrkjetaket and Gjuratinden mountains and produced a maximum temperature of around 19°C, so very similar to the events of the 28/29th December in northwest Scotland as the result of another foehn. From what data I have this was another overnight maximum that occurred at around 06 UTC in the morning, my best guess is that it occurred at Tajford or somewhere close by.
