Denmark narrowly misses first official summer day, warmer weather expected

On Tuesday, Denmark was only 0.1 degrees away from experiencing the first official summer day of the year, as the temperature in Stauning in West Jutland reached 24.9 degrees. This was confirmed by the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), who shared the information on the social media platform X.

A day is classified as an official summer day in Denmark when the temperature reaches or exceeds 25 degrees somewhere in the country. Although this milestone just missed on Tuesday, weather forecasts indicate that West Jutland may soon have the opportunity to kick off the summer season.

According to TV 2 Weather, it is expected that the temperature in West Jutland will rise to over 25 degrees during the upcoming Pentecost days towards the end of the week. This could mark the beginning of a period of warmer weather after a relatively cool start to spring.

The earliest recording of a summer day in Denmark took place on April 17, 1964, when the temperature reached 25.2 degrees at Klosterhede Plantage, located between the towns of Holstebro, Lemvig, and Struer. So while Danes had to settle for an almost summer day this time, there are good chances that warmer temperatures will soon make their way across the entire country.
