Think tropical: 30-degree weather is on its way to the Netherlands!

It seems like the Netherlands will receive a hefty dose of southern European weather very soon. How hefty? We can expect temperatures to reach as high as 30 degrees, if not more! ☀️

Meteorologist Alfred Snoek from Weerplaza predicts the Netherlands will soon experience tropical temperatures, as a wave of hot air from Spain comes to the lowlands. 💨

“Definitely 30 degrees”

Snoek tells the AD to think of tropical levels of heat: “it will certainly reach 30 degrees Celsius here. Maybe more.” 🔥

Dutch meteorologists predict a high-pressure area in the Atlantic Ocean will split, with the eastern half drifting towards the European mainland.

This allows the heat from southern Europe to flow toward the country. With expected temperatures of at least 40 degrees in Spain and Portugal, 30 degrees in the Netherlands doesn’t seem so unlikely. 👀

Looking into the future

However, the biggest question is whether the high-pressure front will draw the heat from the south that far north. Meteorologists at Weerplaza say the chances are 65% to about 70%, based on current increases in temperature.🌡

The most recent weather maps suggest this wave will begin in the second half of July. In any case, next week we can already expect fresh breezes and temperatures up to 25 degrees! 😎

  1. I hate the warm weather in the Netherlands. I’m Mexican, but this warm is different than the warm I grew up surrounded by. It’s too much. I cannot stand it. Luckily, doesn’t last long.
