Denmark Climate & Weather

Denmark Climate and Weather

Despite its northerly situation, the weather in Denmark is not extreme, although its maritime situation and the influence of the Gulf Air Stream does make the climate unstable. Winter weather in Denmark is usually cold and overcast, with the possibility of snowfall between January and March; however, Denmark actually does not get that much snow. Summers (June to August) are relatively warm and sunny. Average temperatures in Copenhagen range from 27°F (-3°C) in midwinter to 72°F (22°C) in mid-summer. Rainy days are common all year round, but the wettest months in Denmark are August, September and October, so anyone planning to travel to Denmark during that time is advised to pack an umbrella. It is worth noting though, that this coastal country can be wet and windy at any time of year. There is not a great variation in temperatures between night and day in Denmark. Winter days get far fewer daylight hours than summer days, which are long. Early summer is the best time to visit Denmark; the month of June is particularly lovely because that is when the days are longest and the weather at its most pleasant.
