A Dutch Summer is On Its Way (FYI, That’s Storms and Strong Winds)

“It’s too hot! It’s too cold! It’s too rainy!” Sound familiar? Yeah, we know we complain about the weather a lot, but come on Netherlands, this is getting ridiculous! Just a few weeks ago we had skyrocketing temperatures, then a mish-mash of rain, sun, wind, and cloud, and this weekend? Boy, ya’ll better get your umbrellas out. 

Let’s hope you’re not relying on sunshine-drenched weather for all your weekend plans, because ch-ch-ch-changes are a-coming.

This afternoon we’re looking a little cloudy, but the rain should hold off for most of the country. Cherish this time, because tomorrow it gets wild.

Tomorrow the weather will be heated at around 22-27°C, it will also be cloudy, with heavy rain predicted. Lucky us, because heavy rain will also bring a friend: strong winds.

The morning is forecast to be more mild, but rain will occur throughout the country in the afternoon. Thunder is likely, but the sun may break through on occasion. Gusts of up to 70-80 kilometres an hour are expected, and the coastal regions may see even harder winds.

On Sunday, the weather will be a bit more mild, although light showers will still make an appearance. The wind will remain moderate.

Next week will hopefully bring a short reprieve. It will be cooler in general, with 17-19 degrees near the beach and 18-21 degrees in the center part of the country. Showers will be around, but less so than on the weekend.

What do you think about the Dutch weather? Prefer to go back to the heatwave, or can you deal with ever-changing forecasts more? Let us know in the comments below!

Sam isn’t great at being Dutch. Originally hailing from Australia, she came to study in the Netherlands without knowing where the country was on a map. She once accidentally ordered the entire ice-cream menu at Smullers. She still can’t jump on the back of a moving bike. But, she remains fascinated by the tiny land of tall people.
