It’s time to shove your ice skates and warm gloves back into the closet with Dutch temperatures expected to climb up to 17 degrees this weekend. 

If you thought taxes in the Netherlands were confusing, try making sense of the Dutch weather. Last week we were able to enjoy snowball fights, natural ice skating, and magical frozen canals (which had led to some strange occurrences). 

Now it may be time to take out our spring jackets and finally enjoy a bit of sunshine, because “spring is coming,” according to Buienradar meteorologist Martijn Dorrestein on RTL Nieuws

Sunny Sunday

On Saturday, we can expect temperatures around 15 degrees — but Sunday will undoubtedly be the star of the week. Temperatures are supposed to reach as high as 17 degrees in the south of the Netherlands, and around 15 degrees in cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht. 

This also means that the Code Red weather warning has come to an end. Buienradar confirmed this great news in a tweet:

Next to warmer temperatures, we can also look forward to a bit of sunshine. “The sun will already peek out on Saturday, and Sunday will be full of sunshine. The winter is over,” adds Dorrestein.
