Third time's a charm? β›ˆοΈ

After enjoying a few days of bright sunshine and summery temperatures, it looks like we’re back to seeing the ugly side of Dutch weather. πŸ˜¬β˜”οΈ

The KNMI (Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute) has issued another Code Yellow weather warning due to thunderstorms, hail, and winds set to hit the Netherlands this afternoon.

This is the third time Code Yellow has been announced this week, after issuing the code for thunder and hailstorms and then strong winds.

See you later, spring

Nothing lasts forever β€” unfortunately, that goes extra for spring weather in the Netherlands as well.

Even though temperatures are only dropping to a moderate 10 to 12 degrees Celsius, the country is set to get plenty of rain, hail, and thunder.

Oh, and did we mention winds of up to 100 kilometres an hour along the coast and inland? πŸ₯²
