Promising prognosis: Spring warmth arriving over Easter

by Nathalia Hentze Nielsen

Wind, rain, sleet, hail, and low temperatures.

So far, there hasn’t been much spring to look forward to in March. But everything points towards March ending brilliantly on the weather front.

Most people have Easter holidays starting this Thursday, and that’s when the weather looks set to truly change.

Close to Denmark, forecasts indicate temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius, and here in the country, we’ll also enjoy the warm air streaming over us.

We’ll have to wait until Good Friday before we truly switch on the heat pump, but temperature-wise, it looks promising over the Easter days.

That’s according to TV 2 Vejret (Danish weather channel).

The warmth arrives during the weekend

“It’s more certain that we’ll reach 20 degrees than the temperatures we have now. But we’ll likely end up between 15 and 18 degrees,” meteorologist Jens Ringgård Christiansen from TV 2 Vejret says.

Right now, Saturday and Sunday seem to be the best days, with one of the days possibly reaching 18 degrees.

When the thermometer hits 15 degrees or above, it triggers the first day of spring.

On average, this happens on March 24th.

Thus, the first day of spring will likely fall about a week later than normal.

At DMI (Danish Meteorological Institute), they’re also optimistic about temperatures when we reach the weekend of the Easter days.

Maundy Thursday and Good Friday won’t be particularly noteworthy weather-wise, but then it changes.

“Later in Easter, from Saturday, there are signs that considerably warmer air can flow up over the country from the south, perhaps reaching temperatures between 15 and 20 degrees in several places, but the weather won’t be completely stable; there will probably be both periods of rain and sun,” DMI writes.
