The last day of the year in Denmark is set to be changeable with conditions possibly less than optimal for midnight fireworks.

With the exception of the Baltic Sea island of Bornholm – which will see a clear start to 2016 – a south-westerly wind will bring rain and sleet across the country from the west, beginning in the morning and continuing throughout the evening.

Once the rain and sleet have passed over, the wind will die down, bringing clearer skies. But perhaps not in time for perfect firecracker conditions, weather reporter Søren Jacobsen told broadcaster DR.


Denmark has so far experienced a mild winter, with less snow and sub-zero temperatures than in recent years.

“Rockets and other New Year fireworks might find it tough going tonight, as there will be a lot of cloud, fog and haze,” said Jacobsen.

“West Jutlanders will have the advantage here – they will have clear weather for watching rockets in the sky.”

Temperatures will remain over freezing point as the new year chimes in, with forecasts between one and four degrees above zero.
