After weeks of rain and wind, weather reminiscent of a warmer season could soon be welcomed to Denmark.


Warmer temperatures and sunshine are particularly likely towards the end of the current week, according to DMI meteorologist Klaus Larsen.

“There is more sun coming than we have been used to, and less rain and wind,” Larsen said.

“All things being equal, it will feel nicer, and you will be able to enjoy the sun a little more without a gust of wind blowing right into your face,” Larsen said.

Funen and Jutland were among Danish regions to see sunshine earlier on Monday.

But some showers later this week – particularly on Tuesday and Thursday night – could result in hazardous wet roads, Larsen noted.

“Many places in the country are at risk of slippery roads,” the meteorologist said.

On Monday evening, clouds and showers will move across Denmark from the southwest and spread to the rest of the country.

Tuesday will also begins with rain, but this is forecast to clear up during the day.

Temperatures of between 6-8°C may feel warmer given the lighter winds.

“Wind conditions are becoming more normal in relation to the recent windy weather we have had,” Larsen said.

“Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be nice days with sun in most places,” he added.

Daytime temperatures will be between 5-9°C.

Last month was the warmest and wettest February since DMI began taking records in 1874.

The second month of 2020 was 1.5 degrees Celsius warmer and 12 millimetres of rain wetter than levels considered normal weather for February in Denmark.
