Today marks the summer solstice, which is the longest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere. The sun will set at 9.47 pm tonight, making this day 10 hours and 31 minutes longer than the solstice in December.
What a beautiful day for it, with temperatures soaring to 19°C degrees from 2 pm until 7 pm today in Copenhagen and glorious weather set to continue for days after the summer solstice. Wednesday will be much the same, with highs of 19°C degrees forecast and lows of 11°C. So, it will feel fairly warm day and night!
On Thursday the weather’s going to be warmer, reaching 21°C degrees, which is 6 degrees hotter than the average temperature in June. Friday will be even hotter, with highs of 23°C, carrying over into the weekend, with highs of 24°C on Sunday
It’s not often that we have proper summer weather in Copenhagen but this week is the optimal time to get the BBQ out, go for a swim or even visit one of Copenhagen’s beautiful terraces. Just be sure to bring your suncream and antihistamines because the UV Index and pollen count will be high.
