The rains are already pushing though the coast from the North Sea and winds are expected to pick up force somewhere between 10:00 and 17:00. The weather could lead to over 15 mm of rain falling in just 30 minutes and flooding.

While the rest of Denmark looks set to miss out on the heavy rain, they can expect to see showers and strong winds for a large portion of the day.

The rains are expected to continue over the weekend, though with less frequency.
