Danish weather challenges even the ‘world’s happiest people’

If you can smile through this, you can smile through anything

A small low pressure system in the southern part of the North Sea will provide wet, grey weather for most of Denmark today.

Temperatures hanging at just over freezing will decide whether things are white or wet.
