A strong low pressure system from the west will move accross Denmark this evening bringing potentially dangerous weather due to heavy rain over a short period of time.
Therefore DMI has issued a range of warnings of potentially dangerous weather for the next 24 hours from 3 January at 22:00 until 4 January at 22:00
The showers can be quite heavy and they may release so much water that there locally can fall between 20 – 40 mm rain in less than 24 hours. The warning criteria for heavy rain is 30 mm in less than 24 hours.
DMI announce in their weather update that it is not possible to say exactly where the heavy showers, locally even torrential rainfall, will fall and they encourage residents to follow updates this evening and tomorrow.
DMI expects heavy rain i Jutland and a risk of heavy rain for Funen, Zealand and the islands as the low pressure system slowly continues westwards with risk of heavy showers as it moves accross the country.
