Grab your umbrella: More rain to hit the Netherlands this week

Dying to finally say hoi to spring? We may have bad news for you, as a wintery start to the week means you can’t put those winter coats away just yet. 🥶

According to Weerplaza.nl, this week is off to a rather miserable start, with the weather varying for the rest of the week.

Monday blues

With wind, wet snow, hail and rain all in one week, it looks like a little bit of winter is sneaking into your spring day.

Monday may start off frosty, with temperatures hovering around 7 to 8 degrees Celsius, but don’t worry, because the sun will peep through the clouds during the day.

A fairly dry and sunny Tuesday will follow. It might be a cloudy afternoon with some light evening rain, but it won’t get warmer than a chilly 8 degrees Celsius.

A warmer, but rainy, week ahead

Wednesday is expected to be warmer, with a maximum temperature of 14 degrees Celsius. Although you’ll have to contend with some clouds and the possibility of rain, the warmer temperatures just might give you a chance to pick some beautiful bloemen (flowers).

We’ll see the highest temperature of the week on Thursday, at 16 degrees Celsius. The day will experience a cycle of clouds, sun and light rain, with a heavier shower possibly making an appearance inland.

Translation: Winter is back a bit today. It is quite cold and there are showers with a chance of wet snow and hail. The sun shines between the showers.

A windy weekend

The weekend will start off with a very windy and rainy Friday. (Good luck to any cyclists willing to fight that battle! 😬)

The wind will continue throughout the weekend, with rain or showers expected daily.
