We’re in for a rainy weekend, with temperatures on the cooler side — around 20 degrees. The sun will appear occasionally, but no time for bathing suits this weekend, unfortunately. Never fear, the sun is due to shine next week.
Maurice Midddendorp, a meteorologist at Buienradar tells RTL Nieuws that temperatures “will remain around 20 degrees” over the coming days.
Don’t forget your raincoat
According to Middendorp, this 20-degree weather will be accompanied by local showers. But that’s not all. These showers may be “really big with thunderstorms, hail, a lot of rain and strong winds.” So hold off those BBQ plans.
Also might be a good idea to rethink sitting on a terrace all weekend.
This cooler, rainy weather will stick with us throughout the weekend and into early next week.
Cooler than usual for this time of year
According to Middendorp, the average temperature is usually 23 degrees at this time of the year. We are currently slightly below that — gotta love summer in the Netherlands.
When it isn’t raining there’ll be patches of pleasant weather. Although Middendorp says that he “wouldn’t call it real beach weather or camping weather either.” Damn, seems I won’t be wearing my new bikini this weekend after all.
What will next week hold?
While we’d still recommend you pack your raincoat on the early days of next week, it looks like it will get drier, the sun will shine more and the temperature will slowly rise — that’s what we like to hear!
Middendorp says that the weather “seems to be going in the right direction from Tuesday.” But we’ll have to sit out a few showers first. 😢
