Make the most of the sun — the weekend will bring thunderstorms

The weather will be great over the coming days — the sun will shine, but it won’t be too hot. Over the weekend, there will be a few thunderstorms.

Wondering why you were in a better mood this morning? Oh yes, that’s right — the sun is shining! According to Ed Aldus, the weatherman at Buienradar, “this afternoon we can enjoy beautiful summer weather.”

Aldus says that there will be considerable sunny periods this afternoon, with fluffy white cumulus clouds in the sky. It will be a little cloudier in the northeast of the country.

How hot will it be?

The temperature will hover around 23 degrees in the centre of the country and 25 degrees locally in the southwest. We don’t know about you, but to us that sounds like absolutely perfect weather. 😎

What’s more, today is ideal for a beach day. Thanks to a nice moderating wind along the west coast it will be pleasant but won’t get too hot. Don’t forget your sunscreen though. If the beach ain’t your thing, you could also have a refreshing dip in the pool.

This evening the clouds will dissolve and the sun will shine. Perfect for golden hour selfies — we know you need a new profile picture. A little wind tonight means you won’t be sweating while you sleep.

What will tomorrow hold?

Tomorrow morning will start out cloudy, but the sun is due to be shining by the second half of the morning. We’re in for a sunny afternoon — pack your beach bags, babes! In the centre of the country it will be 25 degrees (hope you know of a nice polder to splash in). Temperatures will rise to 27 degrees locally in the southwest.

Light to moderate winds will blow from the west throughout the afternoon.

The following days will be changeable with periods of sun and cloud. But it will remain dry and that’s the main thing! We can’t have yet another day of arriving at work looking like drowned rats.

Hitting the terrace this weekend? Remember to close your windows

Over the weekend, the sun will shine occasionally, but it will be a wet one. There will be local rain and thunderstorms. Nevertheless, temperatures are expected to range between 21-29 degrees. Dress lightly because it will be muggy. But don’t forget your raincoat!
