Good news (?) for Friday the 13th: Warm weekend ahead!

Looking forward to some late summer weather and trying not to think of climate change? That’s exactly what you should be doing! Bask under the sunlight and enjoy the warm temperatures of 19-22 degrees today, reports Weeronline, forgetting that these are the effects of climate change. You know, because, everyone else is doing it.
It was cloudy this morning, with a light drizzle that may continue until the afternoon. Sunshine will breakthrough as the day progresses, with the temperatures rising to nearly 22 degrees in some parts of the country. Enjoy a nice sunset before the sun bids adieu at 8 pm. The night will be cool in most parts of the country with the highest being in Zeeland at around 10-13 degrees.


You might see some mist and fog in the morning but it will soon clear up as the temperatures rise to 16-19 degrees. The afternoon will be delicious with the temperatures being in the 20s. Enjoy the sunshine while the effects of climate change take its toll – it is a little bit warmer than it usually is this time of the year.


The temperatures will continue to stay high, with the sun shining bright and happy that all of us here in the Lowlands try to cope with the rising sea levels. The temperatures will rise to 19-20 degrees in the north, and 21-23 degrees in the rest of the country. The south will have the highest temperatures at around 24-25 degrees.

Next week

Monday is still bearable with brief periods of rain throughout the country. However, it’s going to still stay moderately dry, with temperatures lower at 17-20 degrees. Normal temperatures for the year will cease again from Tuesday (15-18 degrees). It stays dry in most parts of the country except for in the north. We might (try to) enjoy high temperatures by the end of next week as well.

Clearly, I’m more interested in freaking out about climate change but this weekend’s temperatures are not quite as extreme as the heatwaves we have experienced. What about you? How are you going to enjoy this weekend? Let us know in the comments below!
