Winds could exceed 25 m/s and start picking up tonight

The booze at the Christmas party this Friday might not be the only thing that leaves you lying on your back. According to a warning from the national meteorologist DMI, a storm is heading our way with winds exceeding 25 metres/second.

DMI claims the storm could arrive at around noon on Friday and last for around 12 hours – it looks most likely it will affect the northern part of Denmark the most.

"This week is going to get quite windy in general, and Friday could bring storm-strength winds that turn into a proper storm,” Olaf Mathiassen, a DMI meteorologist, told Ekstra Bladet tabloid.

”It'll probably mostly be the northern part of the nation that is vulnerable, but it depends on the course that the low pressure system takes.”

Won't best Bodil
Last week was the one-year anniversary of the Bodil storm that battered Denmark and caused millions of kroner in damage.

But fortunately, DMI doesn't expect the storm to reach the same destructive levels of Bodil and Allan, the two storms that wreaked havoc last year.

Although the storm warning is specifically for the next 2-5 days, winds will begin picking up to blustery conditions already tonight – particularly in areas near the coast.
