Despite thunder and rain on Thursday evening, the sunny and warm weather Denmark has enjoyed this week will soon be back.

The weather is once again expected to be summer-like in the coming days, meteorologist Dan Nilsvall of the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) said.

“There was a front that passed across yesterday and during the night,” Nilsvall said in reference to the thunder and rain seen in parts of the country on Thursday.

Sunny, albeit slightly cooler weather than that seen earlier in the week, is forecast for Friday.

“There will still be some rain and thunder on Bornholm on Friday morning and overcast skies in most of the country. But that will clear up across the whole country during the day,” the meteorologist said.

Temperature on Friday is forecast at between 13-18°C with light to moderate wind.

Summer-like weather with warm sunshine is expected to be back on Saturday.

“It appears the warm weather will be back on Saturday. It will gradually get warm with some to plenty of sunshine across the country,” Nilsvall said.

Temperatures of 22-23° are forecast everywhere with the exception of Baltic Sea island Bornholm, which will be slightly cooler.

A high-pressure zone will give light to moderate winds on Sunday.

The forecast for the weekend represents a continuation of excellent weather in recent weeks.

Spring 2018 has already eclipsed last year’s grey, cold summer in a number of measures, according to DMI.

As early as April 19th this year, a temperature of 26.7°C was recorded – warmer than any day in the whole of 2017.

Several rain-free periods have also already lasted longer than at any time last year.
