Unusually warm November weather led to recordbreaking temperatures at several locations last night. In both Copenhagen and on Samsø, temperatures hovered near the 11-degree mark.

The weather station at Landbohøjskolen in Copenhagen recorded 10.9 degrees, 0.1 degrees higher than the previous record of 10.8 degrees, which was set on the night of 22 November 1947.

It was the highest recorded overnight November temperature since records began in 1873.

Temperatures also hit 10.9 in Tranebjerg on Samsø, 0.2 degrees above the 10.7-degree local record set in 1938.

Warm temperatures have been the rule thus far for November. As of yesterday, the average temperature for the month has been 9.5 degrees, nearly 5 degrees higher than normal.
