Springing to action: temperatures are rising but continues to rain in the Netherlands

Temperamental Dutch spring has arrived with vengeance. Buy an umbrella because the Netherlands will be rained on for the rest of the week.

Despite warmer temperatures, rain, hail, gusts of wind, and even thunderstorms will bless (or curse?) the lowlands this week, reports NU.nl.

The rain will come again another day

The whole country will experience rain showers for the next two days. 

However, you’ll get an extra treat in the south, as there’s a chance of thunderstorms, hail and gusts of wind.

At least, it won’t be as cold as it has been. Temperatures should average between 11 and 16 degrees Celsius locally.

Try not to get blown away

Don’t get your hopes up — the rain will stay for a while. 

Once again, the Netherlands will experience showers, showers, and more showers.

A fairly strong southwest wind will bring gusts of up to 85 kilometres an hour, and temperatures will drop to 8 degrees Celsius.

Thought you’d start next week off fresh and new. The weather says nee, as more March showers are on the agenda well into next week.

After calling Malaysia her home for 19 years, Eva moved to Amsterdam to study literary and cultural analysis. Well, that was the academic theory — in reality it was more like “cultural shock.” Eva’s mastery of life in the Netherlands involved initiation into the richness of nocturnal hangouts, canals, cuisine, and upright and forthright cyclists (who she now rings her bell back at.) When she is not speeding her way through books, she is winding and weaving down endless straatjes, often finding herself, not so quite by chance, in a gezellig music bar!
