Spring in your step: Today’s temperatures more like fiesta time than February!

Temperatures will hit 14 degrees in some parts of the country today!

Dust off the sun-tan lotion … and defrost it if it’s been down in your basement … because temperatures will reach 14 degrees in southern Denmark today, and 13 in the capital region.

Just 12 days ago, during the night of February 11-12, the thermometer plummeted to -20.6 in central Jutland: a more than 30-degree swing in spring’s favour!

Has winter really gone?
And with no particularly alarming temperatures forecast by DMI over the next ten days – it will be -1 during the night on March 3 and 4 – it is looking like the wintry prognosis forecast a week ago is not materialising.

To be fair, though, winter does have an ugly habit of returning the moment you put your gloves and hat into storage.

Hot air from the southwest
The warm weather is the result of hot air flowing up from the southwest, and the conditions will continue until the end of Thursday.

In the capital, temperatures will reach 13 degrees in the north, but be distinctly cooler in the south.

Allergy season has started
Mother nature certainly seems to be onboard, as the pollen season has kicked off, according to Astma-Allergi Danmark (AAD). 

Hazel and elm are already on the scoreboard, and AAD warns both can affect the approximate 1 million people in Denmark who are allergic to birch pollen.
