Here we go again; rain forecast for the Netherlands

Ahhh, the dreaded weather report. When writing one seems so futile given the rain pelts so persistently. But alas, here we are! 


Showers will continue throughout most of the country for the rest of today. If you are lucky, the sun will occasionally peak through. The temperature will be around 7° C.

Wind will be moderate inland but stronger on the coastal towns. There may be chance of lightening come this evening.

TRANSLATION: Good morning, especially in the northwest, there will be many showers in the coming hours. Later showers are possible everywhere in our country.

The rest of the week

Showers will persist for the rest of the week and tomorrow there is a slight chance of thunderstorm. Temperatures will range between 6 and 9 degrees. Wrap up!

Friday is predicted to be the coldest day of the week as temperatures will reach a maximum of 5-6 degrees.

The weekend

Over the weekend, the temperature will remain cold with some potential showers. If we are lucky, the sun might peak through to give us one of those glorious crisp Autumn days.

Fed up? Change your attitude! Here are four reasons to be grateful for the crappy Dutch weather. Do you mind the rain? Let us know in the comments below!

Freya was born in Edinburgh but raised in New Zealand (cue every person she meets saying “oh I have always wanted to go there but it’s so far away!”). A restless and curious nature has led her to move countries 5 times in the last 3 years in attempt to find a place she can call home. She contacted DutchReview on a whim and arrived in the Netherlands in summer 2019 to start her internship.
