It seem that this week the weather is making up for the lack of rain this summer!
A new warning has been issued of very heavy rain and torrential rainfall – in Danish skybrud.
The warning has been issued from early in the morning on the 14 August at 03:00 until the afternoon around 15:00. This means that the rain could affect the morning traffic – both on the roads, bicycle paths and the public transport.
It is quite a large area that is affected by the warning: West and South Zealand, Lolland/Falster, Funen, Copenhagen, North Zealand, South Jutland, East Jutland, Ikast-Brande, Viborg, Rebild and Mariagerfjord.
The warning of heavy rain means that between 25 and 35 mm may fall over six hours, and locally there is a risk of more than 15 mm in 30 minutes.
Heavy rain means a risk of flooding of low lying areas, water in basements and on the roads (risk of aqua planning).
