If the mild weekend weather left you feeling ready to trade out your heavy winter coat for a light spring jacket, think again.


The Danish Meteorology Institute (DMI) warned on Monday that the recent mild weather will be replaced by a return of subzero temperatures and snowfall by the end of the week. 
“On Monday a cold front will pass over the country. It will bring rain for everyone and it will be quite windy. Up to gale-strength in some places,” meteorologist Anja Bodholdt told Jyllands-Posten. 
From there on it, conditions will only get worse. 
“The theme of this week’s weather could be that it will get gradually colder. The days will be quite similar with rain, wind, sleet and by the end of the week some snow,” Bodholdt said. 
DMI’s six-day forecast calls for little sign of the sun and temperatures that will top out at around 5C. By the end of the week, nighttime temps could fall as low as -4C.

DMI said that precipitation is likely to come in numerous forms, from rain to sleet and snow, with even a chance of hail on Thursday.
