The hottest night ever in the Netherlands was recorded yesterday evening. Here is everything you need to know about this “historical” moment.
Hottest night ever in the Netherlands
If you haven’t noticed, these days Holland has been going through a heatwave. In fact, this heatwave has been so bad, that the government had to take certain measures in order to ensure people’s safety. And despite the thunder and showers in the afternoon, the weather still remained pretty damn hot. All of this lead to some record breaking temperatures. The Netherlands registered the hottest night ever last night. According to reports, the temperature remained above 23.6 degrees in De Bilt the whole night. The hottest temperature was recorded in the Gelderland Deelen at 24.4 degrees.
Het houdt maar niet op. Nu een record warme nacht. Op 25 KNMI-stations sneuvelde het oude record voor de minimumtemperatuur. 24,4 in Deelen is in NL nog NOOIT gemeten! https://t.co/SkDSxcvfni pic.twitter.com/46SFpWgE9H

What to expect today
Today it is expected to be even hotter than yesterday! With the expected temperature of 37 degrees Celsius we are bound to suffer once again. And who said global warming is not real? Trump! Trump said global warming is not real.
Anyways, despite the high temperatures, we’re also expecting some showers today so hopefully it will help us cool off a bit. However, the real question remains if we’ll be able to sleep tonight. Hopefully there will be no record breaking temperatures this evening, so we can all finally get some shut eye without drowning in our own sweat.
Also, it looks like today will be the last really hot day of the week. Starting this weekend the temperatures are expected to go down by as much as 10 degrees Celsius. So all we have to do is survive through today!
