With temperatures shooting up over 30 degrees in many parts of the country over the weekend, Denmark is officially in a heatwave for the third consecutive summer. 

So far this summer there have been 20 ‘summer days’ – days with temperatures measuring at least 25 degrees recorded at least one of the official measuring stations – but only two of them were in July.

Of those 20 summer days, four have been classified as being ‘tropical days’ – when temperatures reached at least 30 degrees.

The heatwave has also lifted the national average temperature of coastal bathing water to 20.4 degrees.
