Heatwaves, cloudbursts and 10,000 lightning strikes have hit Denmark in the past week, but the weather won't be that extreme from now on.

DMI reports that this week and next week will see sun, clouds, a couple of showers and, with temparatures staying in the 20s, it will be what many would refer to as typical Danish summer weather.

Heatwave is over
Monday and Tuesday will still be hot and dry with temperatures between 23 and 28 degrees and sun-lovers should take advantage of those two days to hit the beach. It will then drop to between 20 and 25 degrees on Wednesday and get cooler around the country, although it will be warmest in the east.

There will also be some showers, but not enough to save your dying flower beds. There will only fall between two and five millimetres of rain from now until the end of the week, but the weekend may get really wet and a thunderstorm may be looming on the horizon.
