Torrential rain expected across southern and western Denmark

Heavy rain is forecast on Tuesday evening, particularly in western Jutland and the south of the country.


Beginning around 6pm, heavy rain is expected to spread across most of the country throughout the night, DR reports.

Up to 30 millimetres is expected to fall in the southwest overnight, according to the report, although the rest of the country can expect to see a more moderate 5-12 millimetres over the course of 24 hours.

The news will be well received in some parts, given that hot and dry recent weather has given a current rating of 8.1 out of 10 on the national drought index.


A low-pressure front coming towards Denmark from northern England is the reason for the incoming wet weather. Winds approaching storm force can also be expected.

Meteorological agency DMI has issued a heavy rainfall warning for West Jutland and South Jutland. Such warnings are issued when 30 millimetres of rain are expected within 24 hours.

Local downpours – when over 15 millimetres falls in 30 minutes – have also been warned of for the rest of Jutland as well as Funen.
