Weekend weather in a nutshell: Lousy

Put away the sun lotion and get out that umbrella!

The outlook for the weekend’s weather is that it is going to be pretty wet. DMI meteorologist Jørn Thomsen has told Metroxpress that tomorrow will be especially rainy.

“A low pressure system is on the way that will bring rain and thunder,” Thomsen said.

“The western part of the country will be especially hard hit, so we’ve issued an alert for southwestern Jutland, which could get as much as 25mm of rain in six hours.”

Rain, rain and more rain
The rain is predicted to move east as daytime temperatures hover between 15 and 18 degrees. 

Sunday is not looking much better, with rain expected throughout the country.

This August has already not been one of the warmest on record, and next week promises to start off cold with night-time temperatures dropping down to 10 degrees. 

Warming up at the end of the week
However, DMI says that temperatures by the end of next week should return to a more seasonal 20 degrees.
