Netherlands: Go out or chill at home this weekend? Weather: Yes.

Ahhh yes, the dreadful work week is finally nearly over. It is time for our beloved beer or wine. But the question is, go out or chill at home this weekend? What sort of debauchery shall we get up to? There will be a mix of rain and clouds with a hint of sunshine. Typical Dutch weather right? It is going to be around 8 degrees so make sure you wrap yourself up in a warm coat before you jump on your bike!

Friday will be mostly sunny with some clouds. Don’t eat your lunch inside your office! Take in the little sunlight that is left before the week ahead. The maximum temperature is  predicted to be 9 degrees, and the minimum temperature is a low 4 degrees.


You won’t be able to do much outside on Saturday. Get ready for a cold day with some showers. It would be best to whip up some hot chocolate and read a good book. Perhaps even Netflix and chill with your loved ones (or someone you met on Bumble). Temperatures are going to be between 3 to 9 degrees.

Sunday and the next week

Sunday will be mostly sunny with some clouds, so go cycling, hiking or the beach while you still can! The temperatures will range from 3 to 8 degrees. The upcoming cloudy week is filled with either showers or full on rain. The temperatures will remain frightfully chilly (between 1 to 9 degrees).

It seems that winter is coming! But at least there is Christmas to look forward to. I am sure you can’t wait for the delicious food!

What are your plans for this weekend? Have they been ruined or did you expect this all along? Let us know in the comments below!
