While Denmark has been enjoying clear skies and pleasant temps, one look at the calendar is enough to know that it can't last long. The latest forecast calls for a significant change just around the corner.
If you haven't taken advantage of the past week's sunny and relatively warm weather conditions, your chances of doing so are dwindling. 
 
The high-pressure system that has brought Danes steady sunshine over the past week is on its way out. Meteorology institute DMI said that the weekend should remain dry but daytime highs will drop down to around 15C and the sun will be a less frequent guest with every passing day.

By next week, the dreary grey autumn weather we knew was inevitable will finally arrive. DMI said that the western part of Denmark will see overcast skies and rain on Tuesday, which will then work its way southeast to the rest of the country by Wednesday. Accompanying the rains will be hard winds from the east. 
 
Historically, October's average daytime temperature is just 9.1C while the month averages 76mm of precipitation. The average number of sunshine hours for the month is 87.
