Dutch weather stays overcast and just above freezing for the rest of January

Sick and tired of grey, rainy Dutch weather? Welcome to the Netherlands, we’ve got more grey, rainy weather headed your way. 🌧️

This morning, we’re set to have clouds, clouds, and more clouds, according to Weeronline.

Starting the day at a frosty 2 degrees Celsius, the temperature will hop to about 3 degrees in the afternoon. This mild temperature hike will be accompanied by a brief appearance of the sun every now and then.

Wednesday brings fog and rain

The day will likely be off to a cold and foggy start, with light frost spread across the provinces.

Although there’s predicted to be a slight temperature increase in the afternoon, this will only bring the temperature up to 2 degrees Celsius in the southeast and 4 degrees Celsius in the coastal regions.

Nighttime will bring a wave of precipitation moving from the west to the east of the country, like a surge of tikkies after a night out. β˜”οΈ

For many areas, this will mean rain or sleet, though Limburg may expect some dry snow.

Thursday and Friday are likely to be drier

But not as dry as stale ontbijtkoek, because the odd shower could still be on the cards.

Temperatures will also reach highs of around 8 to 9 degrees Celsius on Thursday, with a little more sun peeking through the clouds.

Friday will be slightly colder, at 4 to 5 degrees during the day.

As for the rest of January…

…it’ll be mostly overcast. πŸŒ₯️

However, highs of 8 to 10 degrees are forecasted for Sunday and Monday, according to the KNMI (Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute).
