Denmark’s summer forecast raises hopes

The good news: DMI's extended forecast calls for "warmer" temps. The bad news: it might also be "wetter".

This week’s weather may not exactly have people digging their swimsuits out of storage, but meteorology institute DMI has offered a bit of hope to winter-weary Danes. 
The institute has released its three-month weather outlook covering May, June and July and predicts that all three months will be “a bit warmer than usual”. 
This being Denmark, however, it wasn’t all good news. Precipitation is also predicted to be higher than the norm. 
“May will likely be both a little warmer and wetter than normal,” the prognosis reads. DMI calls for daytime May temperatures that will be between 10-15C in the start of the month and 15-20C by month’s end.
The outlook for June sounds decidedly more mixed, with DMI predicting that Denmark will often experience high-pressure systems from the east along with increased low-pressure activity from the northwest. 
“This will give us very unstable weather with passing weak front but also the risk of heavy downpours. All told, both precipitation and temperatures should land right around the monthly norm,” DMI writes. 
June’s daytime temperatures should average right around the ten-year average of 18.5C while night temperatures will be around 10C. 
Perhaps the best news in the extended forecast comes in July. DMI predicts “a month with a bit dryer and also a bit warmer weather than normal”.
