After an October that was the second warmest in 140 years
, meteorology institute DMI says that the first three weeks of November will be warmer than average and that Danes can expect a mild start to winter.
Temperatures throughout the country should be about 2-3C higher than normal throughout the rest of November, with daytime highs ranging from 8-13C. With Wednesday off to a wet start, DMI predicts rains through much of the remainder of the week before things taper off into the next.
Overnight temperatures are not expected to drop below the freezing point for at least the next two weeks, but come the end of November DMI says that a more marked temperature drop can be expected, pushing even daytime temps down close to freezing.
Looking at the long-term forecast, Denmark should be in for a fairly easy transition into winter.
“The final month of autumn and the first two months of winter look like they will end mild, with temperatures 1-1.5 degrees above the norm,” DMI’s long-term forecast reads.
“From the end of November and especially in December there will however be an increasing risk that cool and easterly winds will give us a cold spell or two. They will likely be of limited duration, however,” the forecast continues.
DMI said it was too early to predict whether Danes will see a white Christmas.
