Copenhagen spared?
The weather front is expected to reach south-Jutland around midnight, before continuing on north during Saturday night.

The rain is set to continue on Sunday morning in north-Jutland, much of Zealand and Bornholm, although it doesn’t look to be overly formidable in the Copenhagen area, according to DMI forecasts.
