Weather on Bornholm

Bornholm weather September

The weather in Bornholm in September is usually very mild due to the location in the Baltic Sea. The surrounding Baltic Sea has heated up over the summer and releases the heat to the island of Bornholm in September. In the north of Bornholm, for example in Gudhjem or Vang, the rocks were able to store a great deal of heat, which is now released into the environment for months. So the nights are never cold and you can enjoy a glass of wine in front of the holiday home in the evening in an almost Mediterranean climate.

The Bornholm weather in recent years – a review

The weather on Bornholm in 2011 and 2012 was quite unnatural, especially in summer. It rained a lot. For example, in July 2012 it rained 21 days. But that doesn’t mean that it was rainy all day, but that it rained at some point during the day. The special thing about Bornholm is that the sun shines almost every day.
The summer of 2013 shows a completely different side. July was almost always warm and sunny in summer, often cloudless or only slightly overcast.
The summers of the following years were relatively normal, but in 2017 it was relatively cool with many gusts. Ideal for flying kites.
It is a record-breaking one Summer 2018 . For months it was hot and dry with little wind by Bornholm standards. Barbecuing and smoking in the forest were banned for a few weeks. July needed a little rain. But that was the famous drop in the bucket.
The water in the Baltic Sea was also very warm. A strong growth of algae is associated with it. That was typical for all of Europe. The UV index was of course high on Bornholm.

Bornholm’s climate is optimal

Bornholm has the optimal climate / weather for people who have problems with temperature fluctuations and weather changes. Since Bornholm is in the middle of the Baltic Sea, the sea buffers the temperatures very well. So it never gets stifling hot in summer and never bitterly cold in winter. So it is a very mild, constant climate in which people and vegetation can live particularly well. For a long time we thought these statements were pure marketing. However, we can fully confirm this by analyzing the weather data and our own experience.

The greatest precipitation is reached in November with 76 millimeters and in general it can be said that the precipitation is strongest in the months from September to January. Although there is still precipitation in the summer months, it is relatively low and is therefore easy to bear.

In the remaining months there are never more than 12 rainy days, with most rainy days in November and December.

Especially in the months of May, June, July and August, the number of hours of sunshine is above average and you can enjoy the sun here on average one hour longer than is the case in Germany. Due to the proximity to the poles, it is dark for a long time in winter, here it can happen that there is only 1 hour of sunshine a day. But this fact can also have its advantages, because beautiful sunsets can often be seen early on.
