It’s Sunny Skies Ahead, Folks! Netherlands Headed for Warm Weather

If you’re sick of squinting through the rain that’s repeatedly pecking at your eyeballs as the wind forcibly pushes you and your bike in the direction you just came from, well boy, do we have some good news for you!

Them smart ol’ meteorologists over at Buienradar are predicting a transition to sunny and warm weather. We’re not quite sure how they made this prediction, but we think it involved purple turbans, incense, and a spherical glass ball with a mysterious fog inside.

Regardless of their methods, we’re pretty pleased that they settled on sunshine and summer weather because boy, we were worried about our ‘Dutch Summer’ there for a moment. (Since when did Dutch Summer come to meet record-breaking heat on one day to rain and clouds the next?!)

So what’s the forecast?

Let’s get to the good stuff. Over the next few days our metaphorical weather diet will consist of less metaphorical sunshine (yay!). But, we have to do a slow fade to that weather first.

Today we’re looking pretty dang sunny, but may start to get some clouds later in the morning. There will be some moderate southwest wind, and even a chance of local showers. But hold tight, the good stuff is yet to come.

Tomorrow we can all kick back, slap on some sunglasses, and enjoy “wonderful weather” with stacks of sunshine. The mercury will be hitting around 21 degrees in the middle, 23 degrees in the southeast, and 20 degrees in Wadden. In the afternoon there may be some cloud cover.

Over the following days it will be warming up further, and the sun is predicted to hang out with us all day! There will be enough sunshine to douse yourself and stockpile the extra into a little jar to save for winter. Temperatures will be steadily rising each day, heading towards a glorious 25 degrees in the northwest and 30 degrees in the southeast.

How will you be spending these sun-soaked days of summer up ahead? 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.
