The weather in Denmark is marked by a mild climate that is tempered by the warm Gulf Stream. Denmark has short summers and long winters, during which temperatures can drop below freezing.
Denmark has four distinct seasons. The summer months are between June and August, with the warmest month being July. Temperatures are usually mild, with the average being around 68°F (20°C).
Winter runs from December to March, with temperatures hovering around 32°F (0°C). Frost and snow are common during winter, so it's best to bundle up with warm clothes to avoid a chill. Strong winds blow throughout Denmark on a near-constant basis; these winds are utilised in Denmark's wind power industry and produce nearly half of the country's electricity.
Spring typically occurs from April to May, and these are generally the mildest months of the year. Autumn (September to November) is usually the wettest and most overcast time of the year.
