Yesterday, the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) shared a prognosis about a snowstorm that is expected to hit Denmark by the end of the week.

“However, it is still very unclear what will happen on Friday. A new low pressure is being formed over Ireland and England on Thursday, which can develop powerfully.

It will pass Denmark, and the latest prognosis says that it will bring powerful winds and a lot of snow to North Jutland,” Martin Lindberg, the on duty meteorologist, said to MyAalborg yesterday.

He explained that they might make a forewarning about the snowstorm within the coming 24 hours, and that they will make an actual warning on Wednesday if the prognosis holds.

Now the first part of his statement has become a reality as DMI today sent out a forewarning about potentially dangerous weather in the form of a snowstorm.

This also includes Aalborg.

When DMI classifies the weather as a ‘category two’ forewarning, also called “dangerous weather”, it’s because the weather can “influence your surroundings and disturb traffic and supply. Follow the authorities advice and be extra aware when you are outside.”

The snowstorm is expected to start in Jutland around 3 o’clock in the morning on Thursday night.

The forewarning will at the latest be updated on Wednesday at 12:00.
