The climate of Zealand (Denmark)
Zealand is the largest of the Danish islands and is located between the island of Funen and Sweden. The island is connected with other Danish islands and the Swedish mainland by several bridges. Administratively the island is divided into two regions and a capital region. The largest city on the island is the capital Copenhagen. Other well known cities on the island include Roskilde, Frederiksberg and Helsingor. Near the city of Helsingor Kronoborg Castle is situated. This castle is a Unesco preservation site. One of the largest rock festivals in Europe is held annually in the vicinity of Roskilde. Zealand has a moderate maritime climate strongly influenced by the Baltic Sea and to a lesser degree by the North Sea. During the winter average daytime temperatures are just above freezing point. During the summer average daytime temperatures are around 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit). Precipitation is quite evenly spread out over the year; during the winter precipitation may fall in the form of sleet or snow.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
