Weather in Copenhagen

Copenhagen has an oceanic climate influenced by low-pressure systems from the Atlantic.

Spring (March to May) sees temperatures climb rapidly from an average high of 5°C (41°F) in March to 16°C (61°F) in May. Late spring is a good time to visit Copenhagen as the weather is drier and prices are lower than summer.

Summer (June to August) is warm but wet. Its northerly latitude also means long daylight – on the summer solstice, the city enjoys 17 hours and 30 minutes of daylight. July is a good time to visit Copenhagen as it hosts a string of festivals. Temperatures wise, the average high is 21°C (70°F) while the average low is 13°C (55°F) in July.

Autumn (September to November) is less hectic as tourists dissipate, but pack a raincoat if you want to visit as the city receives 15 to 19 rainy days a month on the average. Temperatures drop rapidly as the season progresses and by November, the average high dips to 7°C (45°F).

Winter (December to February) is cold but Copenhagen can be quite magical when it snows. In January, the average high is 2°C (36°F) while the average low is -2°C (28°F). February is the driest month, with an average of 15mm (0.6 inches) of rain.
