If you were planning a beach trip this weekend you might want to hold off until Monday. There are a few cloudy days in store for the weekend — but never fear, summer will be back next week! Temperatures may even reach 30 degrees on Wednesday.
First things first, today the sun will be shining brightly and it’ll be a great day to get a tan. The Netherlands is currently enjoying temperatures around 23 degrees on the coast, and 28 degrees in the south of the country.
As a result of the sunny day, astronomy buffs will have been able to see the partial solar eclipse “clearly with eclipse glasses,” meteorologist Maurice Middendorp tells RTL Nieuws.
Trying to plan for tomorrow?
Tomorrow will start off sunny, but may get increasingly cloudy throughout the day. Nevertheless, it will remain dry with average temperatures of 24 degrees — pleasant conditions for a picnic in the park.
What will the weekend look like?
Of course, being the Netherlands it’s too much to expect the sun to be here to stay. On Saturday we can expect cooler cloudier weather and a maximum of 20 degrees. So if you go for a biertje at a terrace, remember to bring your jacket.
If you were planning a beach day in the Netherlands for the weekend, never fear! Meteorologist Maurice Middendorp says that, “On Sunday the fairly sunny weather will return.” Though temperatures will still be hovering around 20 degrees.
Hot weather next week
Next week the summer weather will return with temperatures rising to 25-29 degrees. And yes! Temperatures may even reach 30 degrees in the southeast of the country next week!
Of course, being the Netherlands, there is a chance of thunder and rainstorms on Wednesday. According to Middendorp, if it does rain, the temperatures will not reach 30 degrees — wat jammer!
