April showers are back for the Netherlands (and the heat is gone!)

It’s not good news I’m afraid. The weather is changing for us in the Netherlands this week, as temperatures drop by over 10 degrees celcius and the rain is back! Now we can all go back to complaining about the rain again. 😉 I know why you’re really here though… weather for King’s Day? Skip to Friday and don’t expect too much. Don’t worry, I’m sad too. Anyway, lets get to it:

Us when ‘summer’ is gone


Today is a nice day for most of us, with sunny weather and bit of cloud. The temperature has dropped a fair bit though. It’s between 12 to 18 degrees celcius.


Now it’s really starting to become traditional Dutch weather. Most of the country will have outbreaks of heavy drizzle and we aren’t going to see much sun. The temperature has dropped to highs of 14 degrees celcius, with lows of 9.


Wednesday is expected to get the most rain, with outbreaks of heavy rain throughout the day. We may get to see the sun too, so I guess it’s not ALL bad! ‘Highs’ of 13 degrees celcius and lows of 10 for this day.

Sadly we’re expecting more rain on Thursday with randomised rain showers. But hopefully most should pass by without soaking us. The sun will also try and make an appearance throughout today. Highs of 12 degrees celcius and lows of 8.

Friday (King’s Day!)

If you’re anything like me, you’re absolutely devastated that King’s Day was not last week. Before you get excited, the weather is going to be nothing like it was last week. *cry* HOWEVER, so far so good, the rain seems to be keeping at bay. It’s going to be a bit chilly though. HIGHS of 13 degrees celcius and lows of 6.


So far the weekend isn’t looking great (it’s looking rather wet). The perfect time to not feel guilty when recovering from a mad Friday. We’ll keep you updated on that one!

Don’t forget to join our Facebook group for more Dutch stuff! Go on!
