Denmark’s summer weather forecast: a mixed bag all round

June and July looking variable, with sunny skies and warmer temperatures expected in August

Students, rejoice! DMI has announced its summer weather prognosis and for those with time to spare over the latter half of the season, it’s looking good!

“The months of June and July looks a little mixed, but overall it looks like we could have a dry, warm period in late June and early July,” said Steen Hermansen, an energy meteorologist from DMI.

Good news for festival-goers
However, it looks like we will have to wait until the end of July or beginning of August for classic beach weather.

On average, the temperatures over the summer are set to hover around normal, but colder periods can also be expected.

It is also good news for festival-goers attending Denmark’s two of the biggest music festivals, Roskilde and Smukfest, as temperatures are set to be warm over those periods.

Here is the monthly prognosis according to DMI:

June: Good weather from the middle of the month, with high pressure bringing some heat to Denmark. However, the weather remains volatile, with the risk of heavy rain.

Temperature: above 25 degrees during the hottest periods, down to 13-18 during the coldest.

July: According to DMI, the weather will remain warm at the beginning of the month, before temperatures fall in the latter half, supplemented by bursts of rain.

Temperature: around 15-20 degrees. Warmer temperatures earlier in the month.

August: Summer warmth returns with a number of sunny days. However, we can also expect intermittent bursts of large, concentrated rain.

Temperature: around 20-25 degrees.
