There will be no need for overcoats or umbrellas in Denmark this weekend.

Temperatures of up to 20° Celsius are forecast by the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) this weekend.

Cloudy grey skies are set to be replaced by clear, warm, summer-like weather, DMI meteorologist Frank Nielsen said.

“The amount of sun will vary in different parts of the country, but it looks generally promising all over,” Nielsen said.

“We can expect lovely spring weather that will almost be summer-like by the end,” the meteorologist added.

With Thursday night having seen cold temperatures almost dropping to freezing point, cold will still be felt in the air early on Friday.

But with the sun out, temperatures will quickly head towards the 15°C mark during the course of the morning.

“It will feel cold for the bicycle trip to work, but don’t let that put you off. Clear nights and low winds always give cold mornings,” Nielsen said.

“The weather will improve day by day,” he added.

Sunshine on both Saturday and Sunday will see temperatures reach between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius, according to DMI’s forecast.

Rain is not forecast anywhere in Denmark.

“It will be a great weekend for sitting in the garden or outside cafés,” Nielsen said.

Northwestern Jutland is forecast to see the most cloud, while a mild southwesterly wind is forecast in coastal areas.

The sunshine will not be limited to the weekend, according to DMI, with warm weather expected to continue until the middle of next week.

“It appears the good weather is set to continue into next week, and it will only get better,” DMI’s meteorologist said.
