Denmark residents haven't enjoyed a true summer day since June 25th but the long wait may finally be over.
The calendar might say mid-July but it’s hardly felt like summer in Denmark. The last time temps topped 25C, the threshold for the ‘summer day’ designation, was all the way back on June 25th according to TV2 Vejret’s records
But summer is set to make its long-awaited return later this week according to forecasters. The Danish Meteorology Institute (DMI) said that a high-pressure system is on its way to Denmark, finally giving residents a reason to put on their swimsuits again.

“It will be significantly warmer this week with a high-pressure system from the southwest and lovely sunny weather [coming up] from the Alps,” DMI meteorologist Mognes Rønnebek told news agency Ritzau. 
“Wednesday will be a particularly nice day with temperatures between 20 and 25 degrees. Some places could even reach 27 degrees. Additionally, there will be a lot of sunshine and only a light wind,” he continued. 
TV2’s forecast goes even further, saying that northern Jutland could see a high of 29C on Wednesday while Zealand highs could reach 28C. 
As is so often the case with Danish summer weather, however, the return of the warmth could be limited. DMI says that Thursday and Friday might struggle to hit the magic 25C ‘summer day’ mark, but TV2 calls for highs of up to 27C on both days. 
Both sources say that although most of the week will be sunny, there will also likely be significant downpours in parts of the country.
