November starts wet, windy and warm

The dramatic start of the month looks to thankfully be only temporary

This morning, people across the country were treated to weather unusual for November.

In Årslev on Funen, the temperature reached 17.4 degrees – the highest November temperature clocked in 52 years – with temperatures set rise further throughout the day.

Only once before have temperatures surpassed 18 degrees in a Danish November: back on 2 November 1968.

Enjoy it while it lasts
The heat comes in connection with yesterday’s rain, and there is a promise of more rain to come as the day goes on.

Forecasters predict five to ten millimetres of rain, as well strong gusts of wind across the country.

Not only that, but there are high risks of storms, with 30 percent of forecasts predicting their appearance in some part of Denmark today.

The rest of the week however promises to be slightly less dramatic.
