The climate of Skagen (Denmark)
Skagen is located on the most northerly tip of Jutland, it is the most northerly located city in Denmark. The city is part of the Frederikshavn municipality. Originally, the city was located on the Skaggerak which is a part of the North Sea situated between Denmark, Norway and Sweden. However, at the beginning of the 20th century the city moved a few killometeres causing it to be located on the Kattegat which is a strait between Denmark and Sweden. The most northerly tip of Denmark, Grenen is located near Skagen. Here the Skaggerak and the Kattegat flow into each other, this causes very high waves. Skagen has a moderate maritime climate. Because of its location in the north it is slightly colder here than in other parts of the country. During the summer average daytime temperatures hardly rise above 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit). During the winter daytime temperatures are just above freezing point, during the night longer periods with subzero temperatures are not uncommon.
