Denmark has a temperate marine climate, which is mild for its latitude (though it can still feel rather cold for many visitors). The country receives a slight heating draft from the North Atlantic Drift, which is part of the warm Gulf Stream. This is why it tends to be slightly warmer than other countries in this latitude. However, in the coldest month of the year, which is February, the average temperature is a few degrees over freezing (31 deg F). This is not an ideal time for visitors simply because it is so frigid it is difficult to tour around. In July, which is the warmest month of the year, the temperature remains around 63 deg F. This is the high season, when most visitors come to Jutland, both locals Danish and international travelers. Even in the summer, most visitors will still need a sweater when visiting Arhus, especially as wind from the water can be quite prickly cold.  In fact, the summer in Denmark is rather short, and generally throughout the year, travelers will encounter rather cold weather. The average precipitation is 26 in annually in Denmark. Surprisingly, the wettest months are July and August while the spring months are the driest. However, rain is pretty consistent throughout the year. Depending on the type of wind from the ocean, the daily temperature can change drastically by the hour.
