Strong wintry gales have begun moving into Denmark with the Met Office issuing warnings for snowstorms over the next couple of days, starting in the south and southwest and spreading to the rest of the country.

“We have problems with items strewn across motorways, for example” says Anders Bach Sørensen of the Road Directorate. The strong winds will increase in intensity for the rest of the morning, but will die down this afternoon.

Southern regions are preparing for an area of heavy snow spreading from the south, and although snow has begun to fall in southern Denmark, traffic is not has not yet been affected.

Military vehicles have been put on alert and have been stationed at Falck stations in Odense, Svendborg, Nyborg, Otterup, Ringe, Glamsbjerg and Rudkøbing. The alert is expected to remain in force until Wednesday morning.

According to the Met Office, southwestern regions can expect up to 10 cm of snow today, but some areas may see some 20 cm in the next 24 hours. Drifting snow is expected to pose major problems for traffic.

As of 9 a.m. this morning, the Met Office has issued an Orange Warning for the next 24 hours for Funen and areas east of Funen including Bornholm, while central and southern areas of Jutland are on the slightly lower Yellow Warning.
