Summer’s about to start! Here’s what Dutch weather has in store for us

It's... interesting. ๐ŸŒฆ

The last week of spring is off to a relatively warm and sunny start, but the high chance of afternoon showers means your brolly should never be too far. โ˜”๐Ÿ‘€

Monday, May 27, is forecast to kick off a rather balmy week, with a daily high of 17 degrees Celsius in the west and 20 degrees in the east.

Monday: expect a bright morning, but heavy rain at night

Whilst the morning may alluringly whisper “summer weather’s coming” in your ear, the KNMI (Dutch meteorological institute) warns you to be wary of rain at night.

Come afternoon, most regions (save the west coast!) may see the odd shower.

Several areas, such as the east and southeast of the country, are expected to see moderate to heavy rain at night โ€” but the lucky ducks living elsewhere will likely be spared the brunt of this downpour.

Tuesday: rain, rain, and more rain

They say you can’t have too much of a good thing and Dutch weather wholeheartedly agrees, so Tuesday (May 28) is predicted to be as wet as the North Sea. ๐ŸŒŠ

The morning and afternoon may even see occasional bouts of sunshine and balmy temperatures of 18 degrees Celsius, but don’t be fooled โ€” this will give way to clouds during late afternoon and evening.

If you’re living near coastal areas, you may also want to watch out for strong winds, which are expected to reach wind force 5 to 6.

Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday: pleasant temperatures, but plenty of rain

So, that leaves us with sun, rain and wind so far โ€” what’s next?

Well, the rest of the week is forecast to follow much of the same template, with daytime highs of 17 to 19 degrees Celsius and a high chance of precipitation.

If you’re looking for a bit of relief, Friday will likely be the driest and sunniest overall.

But guys, summer is coming

And the last two days of spring? They’re actually looking good!

Offering slightly high max temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees Celsius on Saturday and 18 to 21 degrees on Sunday, this weekend is expected to stay relatively dry.

We’ll take that as a good sign for what’s to come.๐Ÿคž
