It might have felt like spring was a long time coming, but it seems that summer is already on its way.
Summer temperatures of 25°C (77°F) will come to Denmark this week, with Thursday being the warmest day, reports the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI).
“It will be a quite pleasant week in which we will experience warm weather. There will be a lot of sunshine, and on Thursday temperatures will reach 20-25 degrees,” duty meteorologist Frank Nielsen of DMI told Jyllands-Posten.
Southern Jutland will be the warmest part of the country, with temperatures potentially going even higher than the predicted 25°C in those parts, Nielsen said.
The pleasant weather can be seen right from the beginning of the week, with temperatures of up to 18°C (64°F) and isolated showers as well as sunshine Monday with, slightly warmer weather in the afternoon.
While Tuesday will feel cooler with showers in a number of places across the country, it will then begin to feel much warmer on Wednesday.
“It will be up to 20 degrees Wednesday… relative to the time of year it will be quite pleasant,” Nielsen told Jyllands-Posten.
The meteorologist did warn that eastern parts of the country might not feel quite as summery come Thursday, but that sun lotion would almost certainly be necessary in southern Jutland.
By Friday a new front will have reached the country, making weekend weather less predictable.
Fra midten af ugen sommerlige temperaturer, derefter usikkert, men det ser ud til at det lune vejret efterhånden fortsætter igen.— DMI (@dmidk) May 14, 2017
“We will be at around 15-20°C (59-68°F) Friday, but it is not yet certain whether the sun will be shining. The only place where the sun will definitely be out Friday is Bornholm,” Nielsen said.
