Good weather always seems to that little bit sweeter in Denmark, most probably due of the abysmal offerings it conjures up most of the year. And the rest of this week looks tailor-made to fit that conception.

The rest of the week leading up to the weekend will see a fair amount of cloud cover and rain as a low-pressure system makes its way across the country from the Baltic region, according to national meteorologists DMI.

Weekend will be a corker
The bank holiday weekend, on the other hand, is looking promising with sun, little wind and hot temperatures.

“When we approach the weekend we’ll have a high-pressure front move in and that means lots of heat and sun and weak wind,” Lars Henriksen, a DMI meteorologist, told Metroxpress newspaper.

Sunshine until Whit's end
Henriksen said that the temperatures could be as high as 25 degrees Celsius on Saturday and a blistering (Danish standards, mind you) 28 degrees on Whit Sunday in parts of the country.

Temperatures for the days leading up to the weekend will fluctuate somewhere between 15 and 22 degrees.
