if you Live in Kingsdown or the city of Haderslev in south Jutland, should you prepare for problems with sea level rise on the other side of the new year.
DMI report namely that a long-westerly winds followed by strong north winds will give higher water levels and maybe even a storm on Wednesday afternoon.
Therefore, one should prepare large volume of water in the two cities, where the water level is expected to rise by up to 140 centimeters.
Already, the new year's eve it begins to blow up from the west in large parts of the country, and it is the wind, which in the course of Tuesday, changes direction to the north.
Just that change creates elevated water levels, which initially hit the Roskilde Fjord, telling the duty officer at DMI Trine Pedersen to Ekstra Bladet.
- the Shift in the wind is pushing extra water down through the belts, that ends up in the Baltic sea. On Tuesday night, you can expect rising sea levels, and it tops out at midnight at the Roskilde, where the water level is expected to increase up to 120 centimeters, which is the threshold of pain, she explains.
the Weatherman at DMI, while stressing that nothing yet is certain, however, that there is a risk of flooding in several places in the country.
on Wednesday afternoon, the topper it is in the southern part of the country, when the water has come down through the belts. With certain reservations, can the water level rise close to 140 centimeters in Haderslev and Sønderborg, says Trine Pedersen.
I therefore strongly assume that there is a risk of flooding, but we send the heralds out 36 hours before, because the forecasts are constantly changing. Therefore, it is also not safe, she explains.

Major differences in the water level
A strong nordvestenvind means that the water is pushed from the North sea and the Skagerrak to the Kattegat. With north winds rise the water level then in the fjords.
But in fact, the falling water level in southern Jutland, denmark on Tuesday, before it then rises again sharply on Wednesday, says Trine Pedersen:
- What is interesting, is that the one in the City actually starts, when the water rises in Roskilde, to be a lack of 60 centimeters, so it is a fairly large fluctuations in the water level, they are going to experience in a day.
According to DMI, it is uncertain how high the water level will be the different places in the country. The limit of the general warning of storm surge in inland waters, is 125 centimeters, and the Sunday sounds of it, that this limit can be exceeded in several locations.
