It’s official! Today is the first tropical day of the year in the Netherlands and we’re getting exotic weather more ways than one, with monsoon styles storms scheduled for tonight.
The De Bilt weather station has hit 31 degrees, which marks the official status of the tropical climate. The eastern border of Limburg may rise to a steamy 34 degrees today.
After all the heat this week — and not just on the football pitch — we’ll welcome some rain to cool us off. We might get more than we bargained for, with code yellow warning showers predicted for tonight, according to the NOS.
Did you say heatwave?
Despite these soothing showers, tomorrow looks like it could still be a balmy day in the southeast of the Netherlands. If that’s the case, then it will be considered a regional heatwave! 😱
Due to this heady weather, farmers in Limburg are banned from using water streamers from 12 PM tomorrow. This is because the water evaporates too quickly, causing overall water levels to rise.
