Climate. – According to usprivateschoolsfinder, the climate is typically oceanic, with mild winters and cool summers. In some places February is a bit more rigid than January, in others the opposite happens, but there are never big differences. In January, the average temperature on the coasts of West Jütland and the Little Belt is 0.5 °. In the interior of Jütland and the islands it is colder. The daytime excursion is minimal in winter; in January in Copenhagen the values remain around 4 °, 1. But the uneven fluctuations in temperature are large and there have also been long periods of frost. These mostly coincide with the peaks of northern Europe; southern winds and mild temperatures with the approach of barometric lows, northern winds and fresh wind as these move away. In the four months of winter (December-March) there is always the possibility of severe frost. In April, the average temperature even exceeds 5 °. In the first half of the month there are still rare days of frost; on the other hand, it is likely to freeze at night. In May, the average temperature exceeds 10 °, and the trees begin to sprout. Spring and early summer are the times when the sun shines more and it rains less. In spring, cold east winds blow frequently with clear skies (summer are the times when the sun shines more and it rains less. In spring, cold east winds blow frequently with clear skies (summer are the times when the sun shines more and it rains less. In spring, cold east winds blow frequently with clear skies (Paaskeøsten, or Easter east wind). The first months of summer are relatively dry, therefore not very favorable for agriculture. In July, the hottest month, the average temperature on the west coast. of Jütland is a little below 15.5 ° and arrives in Guldborg Sund at about 17 °. At the end of the summer, and coinciding with the minimum barometric levels, thunderstorms with abundant rains are frequent, which sometimes damage the crops. In spring and summer, the temperature fluctuations during the day are greater than in winter (in May in Copenhagen 10 ° 5); on the other hand, the irregular fluctuations are less than the winter ones. Annual rainfall averages 700-800 mm in western Jütland, 500-600 mm in Zealand, 400-500 mm in southern Kattegat and at the Store Belt. The most abundant rains fall in June; another high is in October. In winter SW winds prevail.; in April and May the winds from E. are as frequent as those from W. In summer they blow mostly from the West. Due to the prevalence of the mistral, the western coasts are more exposed to the wind than the eastern ones; this is especially true for the west bank of the Jütland washed by the open ocean.
In conclusion, proceeding towards E. the differences between hot and cold seasons increase, atmospheric humidity increases and the daytime excursion also increases. The stronger the winds, the more frequent and rapid the temperature changes.
Rivers. – Given the morphology of the country, the waterways are short and the hydraulic power of little importance. The outlets of some rivers are navigable for small boats: eg. the Varde Aa up to Varde, the Sus Aa up to Nœstved; a canal for medium-sized vessels reaches Odense. The Guden Aa, the largest river in Denmark (160 km.), Is navigable up to Randers; both the river and the Randers fjord were deepened to this locality. In the past, light boats also circulated in the upper reaches of the Guden Aa, but navigation was suspended after the damming and embankment of the river near Tange; here stands the only hydroelectric station in Denmark. The plant consists of a dam, which accumulates 20 million cubic meters. of water in a tank of 14 sq. km. The cataract is 9-10 m long; and in the plant there are three 2000 HP turbines, which produce 10 million Kw annually. Of the lakes, all small, the largest is the Arresœ (42 sq. Km.); Esromsœ (14 sq km) and Furesœ (9 sq km), all in Zealand, are even more modest in size.
