According to meteorologists, the recent resurgence of warm temperatures and sunny skies will last well into next week and could culminate in highs of up to 28C.
After an overcast Friday morning, sunshine and highs of around 25C were due to move in right in time for the weekend.
“Saturday is looking very nice. In northwestern Jutland there will be a few more clouds to contend with, but the majority of Danes will have sunshine for most of the day,” Henning Gisselø of the Danish Meteorology Institute (DMI) told Ritzau.
“Sunday will be a bit different because there will be a bit of rainy weather in the early morning hours. But it will clear up again and it will be around 18-23C through the course of the day,” he added.
Gisselø said that Denmark is currently benefiting from the heat wave that has brought temps as high as 45C to southern Europe, as well as a high pressure system over Poland that is keeping skies clear.
Looking ahead to next week, DMI called for temperatures to reach as high as 27C on Tuesday.
TV2 Vejret was even more optimistic. The broadcaster said that the mercury could hit 28C and even possibly set a record for the highest temperature this late in the year.
Although this probably goes without saying if you’ve spent any significant amount of time in Denmark, DMI’s Gisselø encouraged everyone to take advantage of the current conditions.
“You should just be happy that we have such delightful weather. Because suddenly it will be gone and we’ll be asking each other where the summer went,” he told Ritzau.
