First the good news: Monday will bring a return of warm spring-like weather to Denmark.
The bad news: just how warm it gets will vary depending on location and nowhere in the country is the nicer weather expected to stick around long.
“The wind is coming from the south so we can temporarily enjoy the warmth that is south of us. But that will only be in central and southern Jutland,” broadcaster DR’s meteorologist Morten Lynge predicted.
Temperatures are expected to top 20C in the southern part of the country, while the nation’s coastal regions will be plagued by hard winds that will keep temperatures down to the 13-15C range.
On Zealand, meteorology institute DMI is calling for a high of 18C.
Regardless of where you are in Denmark, you’d be well advised to get out and enjoy what Monday has to offer. By the time Ascension Day rolls around on Thursday, the weather will make for a cool day off.
“Already tonight there will be front bringing rain and the winds will turn so that we get cooler air for the rest of the week. We’ll be back between 10-15 degrees,” DMI spokeswoman Trine Pedersen told Metroxpress.
While the temperatures are expected to drop back down, DMI was only calling for rain on Tuesday and Wednesday, with things clearing off just in time for the national holiday on Thursday. Temperatures however are not expected to top 15C, so those also taking Friday off for a long weekend at the summer house are well advised to remember their jackets.
