It’s heating up! Highs of 36 degrees in the Netherlands this week

Did someone say summer? Because it’s here, baby! After what seemed like an endlessly rainy spring, the hot weather is here to stay. Some parts of the Netherlands may reach 36 degrees on Thursday.

It’s going to be a slow roast with temperatures reaching a moderate 27 degrees today. There will be some cloud over the country, according to meteorologist Marc de Jong of Buienradar.

Warm Wednesday

Tomorrow, the temperature starts to climb. De Jong tells RTL Nieuws that today “it will be a very sunny day, with about 30 degrees in the south.” This is thanks to a high-pressure area drifting its way over the Netherlands. 💁

Searing hot Thursday

Sorry if you’re not a sun worshipper because later this week it’s getting steamy. De Bilt is likely to reach a high of 32 degrees, whereas the east of the country may reach that scorching 36 degrees! 😎

On Thursday evening, the humidity will be cleared by a bout of thunderstorms. But watch out because there is a flood risk! Maybe it’s a good evening to stay in and watch the football.

The weather should stay warm for the end of the week, but those tropical showers may be here to stay. So enjoy the blue sky while you can!
