Confused Dutch climate: First frost of the year recorded but it will be 25 degrees this weekend

Feeling the winter coming on? The first frost of the season was noticed in North Brabant and Limburg, with the temperature recorded at -0.9 degrees, reports Weerplaza. Last year, it was recorded at the beginning of September. However, on average, it is recorded somewhere around September 15, so we’re well on schedule!


The recording of the first frost does not mean that we will have to whip out our winter coats and stash our fall jackets somewhere at the back of the closet with our summer wear. The temperatures are set to rise to 15 – 18 degrees this afternoon around the country.


Will there be frost tonight?

There might be frost again tonight in some parts of Brabant and Limburg, so make sure to keep those windows closed to not let any draught in!


However, during the day, the sun will be shining through. There is a very low chance of rain in the country, except for a few showers in north and west. You can enjoy the sunshine today and tomorrow with temperatures not reaching a toasty level, but still pleasant enough to layer up with only thin clothes.


Weather this week

The weather is set to be dry throughout the week. You can also look forward to some of the last summer days with temperatures reaching 20 – 25 degrees during the day. However, they will drop to 4 – 8 degrees in the night, reports Weeronline. So, go out in your best summer wear, but don’t forget a warm jacket and scarf for the night. You’ll need it!

You don’t have to worry about frost though. Weerplaza says there is a very small chance of that happening this week.

Can you feel the fall leaving us and winter coming on? Any tips for us who come from particularly warm countries? You know we’ll need them. Let us know in the comments below!
