Storm cancelled in Denmark, but high winds and rain forecast for weekend
A relatively cool and rainy weekend is forecast for the entire country after a storm system did not have the impact previously expected.
Forecasts of a storm, designated the name Johanne, have been retracted, meteorologist Trine Pedersen of DMI said on Friday morning.
âThere will not be a storm,â Pedersen said.
âBut we still expect it to be windy today. The west coast can expect strong winds with gusts reaching gale force. The same applies to the LillebÃ¦lt area,â she added.
A low-pressure front building off Jutlandâs west coast and moving over the Skagerrak sea is responsible for the winds, which will, however, disperse during the course of Friday.
A cool but pleasant day is otherwise forecast by DMI, with isolated showers only and temperatures between 17 and 22 degrees Celsius.
âIt will be a very nice day considering how windy it is,â Pedersen said.
The weekend will see rainy weather across the country, the meteorologist continued.
âWe can, in general, expect more changeable weather. The weekend will be very wet across the country. On Saturday a small low-pressure zone will draw rain in over the whole country. There will probably be both rain and thunder,â she said.
Temperatures as cool as 16-17Â°C are forecast on the west coast on Saturday, with Baltic Sea island Bornholm, at 20-21Â°C, the warmest part of Denmark.
Sunday will also be overcast with rain.
âIt is not yet clear how much rain there will be, but there certainly wonât be much sun. So temperatures on Sunday will also not exceed 17-20Â°C,â Pedersen said.
