Scandinavia in September?

What's the weather like in September in Scandinavia? My wife and I almost always travel in the shoulder seasons, and aside from the occasional rainy day have really enjoyed going to Europe in fall (Sept/Oct.) Just curious if the weather is still decent in Scandinavia in September.

Jim,

i was in Oslo, STockholm and Copenhagen last Sept. Cloudy/overcast with some sunshine thrown in. It sprinkled in Stockholm for a day or 2. it was cooler for the natives, but for me it was warmer where i could wear my Long Sleeve shirt and be happy.

your mileage may vary

Happy trails.

Unless you're talking about the far north, the most populated areas of the Scandinavia generally have a surprisingly mild climate. As long as you're not expecting Mediterranean sun, the weather is very pleasent. Sweater and jacket weather, mostly.

I spent one September in Schlesswig, Germany near the Danish border. It was cool, almost always jacket weather and often rainy, sometimes hard rain. It wasn't horrible but a little on the cool and wet side for tourism. When I chose to visit Scandinavia I chose late July/early August, based on my experience and reviews from others. Our time was well chosen, it was nice enough to visit a beach in Zealand and downright hot in St. Petersburg, but we still had one rainy day and one stormy day.
