With double-digit temperatures expected for part of the country over the next week, spring is in the air … or is it?
Not according to Anna Christiansson, a meteorologist at DMI, who warns that winter will return in late February.
In early March, a long period of ice days is seen that is not too different from the constantly freezing weather that finally ended last weekend.
Colds are expected in March
“In early March, the daytime temperature will be between -2 and -4 degrees,” she told DR.
“And if there are no clouds and wind, we can get an overcooling of the air, and then you talk about -10 at night. There are many things to play, but there is a clear risk. ”
In the middle of next month, however, Christiansson is convinced that spring is finally coming: “In mid-March, it looks like it will get a little warmer again with daytime temperatures of 2-4 degrees.”
11 degrees in capital next week
Today it starts with fog in many places, and then the temperature starts to rise in the southern country and bring sunshine to the southern Jutland and the southern islands of Funen, Lolland and Falster.
The metropolitan area will have to wait until tomorrow for the warmer temperatures that arrive with a lot of rain, although most of this (8 mm) falls before the morning commute to work.
Starting next week, the temperature will peak at 11 degrees on Thursday.
Last fourteen days the coldest spell in 11 years
Finally, DMI has confirmed that the latest ‘ice week’ was Denmark’s coldest incantation since January 2013 – and possibly since December 2010.
Over a 14-day period, the country’s average temperature was -4.2 – comparable to 2013, but warmer than 2010, when the norm was -6.6.
Nevertheless, DMI does not believe that the recent cold will contribute to this winter being one of the coldest in the last 30 years. Since 1991, there have been at least eleven winters that have probably been colder, confirmed DMI meteorologist Mikael Scharling.
