We’re looking forward to the weekend already: SUN returns to the Netherlands

The grey, rainy, and somewhat windy Dutch “summer” will continue to haunt us for a few more days. However, as the weekend comes closer, so will summer weather, reports AD.

Yup, you know what that means: it’s time to dust off the swimsuit again baby! This weekend will bring sun and 25 degrees. 😎

Sunny start to the week

While today and Tuesday aren’t going to be the warmest days of the week, they look promising for those who are tired of the Dutch rain (and aren’t we all 🙊). The first two days of the week will have a high of 19 degrees in the northern and coastal regions, while the inland and especially more southern regions can enjoy up to 22 degrees.

However, it’ll seem warmer than the past few days of similar temperatures as the wind will remain a moderate breeze. Monday and Tuesday are also the days with the least chance of rain — leuk!

Nevertheless, local showers can bring a lot of precipitation in a short time in some areas. The south and southeast of the country, especially South Limburg, can expect 20 to 30 millimetres of rain.

Colder nights

The clear skies today and tomorrow can cause some cold nights at the beginning of the week. In fact, temperatures could go as low as seven or six degrees — a drop that’s unexpected this time of year.

For early birds (or those willing to become one for a day) though, the colder nights can be a blessing in disguise! Namely, they bring beautiful dawn. So we recommend grabbing a blanket and your favourite person and watching the sunrise! 🥰

Warmer towards the weekend

As the weekend draws closer, so will the warmer air from Central Europe. From Thursday, the Netherlands could benefit from these southern winds and temperatures could rise to 24 degrees in the southeastern part of the country.

The heat, however, will also bring an increased chance of rain and thunderstorms. BUT on the weekend, we can look forward to 25 degrees and seriously sunny weather. 🥳

For those living near the coastal regions, the opportunity for sunny beach walks comes at the cost of a few degrees. Overall, the weather in those regions will remain slightly cooler throughout the week with 20-22 degrees being the weekend high.
