What will the weather be like for King’s Day 2024? It’s loo-KING good!

Weather fit for a king 👑

It’s the difference between wearing your orange shorts or digging out an orange scarf, hat and gloves. Well, good news! King’s Day will feel the warmest it has in a while.

The freezing weather recently makes it hard to believe Saturday’s royal celebrations will be anything more than a mass of shivering crowds turning blue, not orange. 🥶

But while it certainly doesn’t feel like spring just yet, come Saturday it will be a lot warmer, reports Weeronline.

King’s Day brings the rays…

Don’t let the festivities go to your head too early, however.

While it will get warmer throughout the day, the street sellers setting up at 8 AM will have a chilly start, with temperatures sitting around 6 degrees.

So, if you’re celebrating in Eindhoven, the Hague or Amsterdam, you can expect some good weather to keep you company (and many, MANY people). 🧡

You’ll still need a coat if you plan to be out on King’s Night this Friday, as temperatures will fall between 4 and 8 degrees.

And, as always in the Netherlands, expect a few showers throughout. But go for an orange umbrella to truly embrace the practical and the patriotic. 🌂
