Another day of sun and summer over Denmark – and it will continue until Saturday.
Summer has really come to Denmark, and in the coming days it continues with warm and sunny weather throughout the country.
On Wednesday the temperature reached just over 27 degrees. On Thursday it can get even hotter. Thus, another hot and sunny summer day is planned, where temperatures in most places will reach between 24 and 27 degrees heat.
Locally, the thermometer in North Zealand and in Copenhagen can reach 28 degrees heat.
We are thus overlooking the hottest day of the year.
The year’s highest temperature is 27.2 degrees, measured on June 16.
Along the shores of the Baltic Sea it can get a little cooler. Here, a steady east wind will keep the temperatures down around 20 to 22 degrees.
Already local heat wave today
Today’s summer weather will already be able to experience local heat waves across parts of the country on Thursday.
After the last two days of summer weather, the temperature in Copenhagen and in Tirstrup on Djursland on Thursday just needs to reach 25 degrees before there is a heat wave.
This is a heat wave when the average of today’s highest temperatures for three consecutive days is above 25 degrees. If this happens in more than half of the country, there is a nationwide heat wave.
And this will be the case on Friday, with heat waves expected in large parts of the country, which can continue on Saturday.
Both days the temperature can reach between 25 and 28 degrees, but during Saturday rain and thunderstorms threaten to do away with summer heat over Denmark this time.
The heat wave, which now hits Denmark, is the first nationwide heat wave of the summer.
