Julie Uhrenseldt wore woolen underwear when she cycled to work in the coldest place in Denmark


Although it can be a cold pleasure early in the morning when the calendar says January, it was extra cold this morning when Julie Uhrenseldt had to go out the door to meet at Konditorbager Horsens, where she is a baker.

For Horsens, Saturday morning is the coldest place in the country, where the temperature was still minus 11.8 degrees at 09.00.

Those who have enjoyed the snow, on skis and toboggans, must see to get going today and tomorrow, because then it starts to thaw away

But that is not something that makes the Horsensians drop the trip to the baker for fresh breakfast bread.

“We have many customers who come both walking and cycling, so we do not complain. It was really cold when I cycled to work this morning, so I had found my warmest outerwear and put on woolen underwear, “says Julie Uhrenseldt.

Clear road and high sun

According to Lars Henriksen, meteorologist on duty at the Danish Meteorological Institute, DMI, you have to go back to March 2018 to find a colder night and morning. At that time, the temperature reached minus 12.9 degrees.

“In general, you find the lowest temperatures in the inner parts of Jutland, where the temperature is between minus 10 and minus 11 degrees, so it is icy cold outside.”

It is warmest on the coasts, which is due to the water temperature, which is still relatively high. At Sjællands Odde, there is currently the highest temperature, which is minus 0.1 degrees.

But if you are happy with freezing temperatures that give red cheeks and make your eyes water, it is about enjoying it, says meteorologist Lars Henriksen.

»It will be really nice weather today with sun for most people. But out in the North Sea is a front system that is slowly creeping east. It is a warning that we will eventually have days with milder weather, “he says and adds:

“So it means that those who have enjoyed the snow on skis and toboggans must see to it that they leave today and tomorrow, because then it starts to thaw away, unfortunately.”

The cold weather has come behind DMI, where long-term meteorologist March Lindberg according to Jyllands-Posten had actually expected a mild winter, but who now predicts that the winter this year and next year may be relatively cold.

To Jyllands-Posten, he estimates that January will end with an average temperature of between 0.0 and 1.0 degrees. It is a lot colder than Denmark’s climate standard for the winter season, which tells how the weather is on average, and which for the past 30 years has been 1.6 degrees on average.
