It may be over-charged (too much refrigerant) or not enough air across the evaporator coil. Actually it could be under charged. The pressure is lower during the night since it is cooler outside. If the pressure drops on the low side below 56-58 pounds correlates with lower than 32 degrees making the humidity in the air freeze to the coil (evaporator). In all likelyhood you need a slight charge of R22. If the filter is dirty, again it could be like the 1st answer not enough air over the coil. But I will stick with my theory.

How many hours of daylight per day in Norway?

This depends on where you are in Norway. Usually, in the south, you'll have daylight from 5 in the morning to 11 in the evening during the summer. In the north you'll have daylight 24 hours a day. In the winter, you'll have something like 1 hour of daylight in the north and 5-6 hours of daylight in the south.

Why is daylight savings called daylight savings?

The idea behind daylight savings is ultimately to shift clocks so that they can better take advantage of the lesser amount of sunlight available during winters.

What is the difference between evening and night?

Night is when the sun is down and it is dark. Evening is after the day's work is done (for those who work a standard day shift of 8-10 hours or so) often after the last meal of the day, and until about time to go to sleep. Some of the evening can be during daylight, depending on where you live. Some of the night can be well after the evening has ended. So part of the night is during the evening, and part of the evening is at night, but they are not identical.
