DMI issues warning: Heatwave to continue

Roasting weather to continue over the weekend and into next week

For the tenth day on the trot, the temperature is expected to reach and breach the 25-degree mark today.

And according to the national weather forecaster DMI, you can expect that trend to continue in the coming days. 

In fact, for the next two to five days, DMI has issued a ‘Category 2’ weather warning.

“Be prepared that the weather development can impact your surroundings and disturb traffic and supplies. Follow the authority guidelines and be extra vigilant when outside,” DMI wrote.

Hefty, hot and humid
The temperature is expected to surpass the 30 degree mark in parts of Denmark this weekend, although sea breezes can cool things down a bit in coastal areas.

From Sunday, there will be more moisture in the air, so the days will feel more humid.

The sea water temperatures are expected to be in the 19-23 degree range, so a refreshing dip seems in order.

According to DMI, temperatures will wane to around 23 degrees on Tuesday as more cloud cover moves in over Denmark.
