Rain, Rain, Go Away, But it Looks Like You are Here to Stay!

That’s all for Summer 2019 folks, two national heatwaves and three regional heatwaves. Which is, well, pretty damn good for the Netherlands! But all those rain jackets and umbrellas we own will be put to good use in the upcoming week as rain is on the way..

Strong winds from the North Sea will bring the first lot of rain Wednesday morning and reduce temperatures to around 15 degrees. Between 5 and 15 mm of precipitation is expected but more could easily fall in the west and north of the Netherlands.

Showers will continue into Thursday and temperatures will remain nippy. Friday and the weekend are forecasted to be drizzly as well but the temperatures will rise a little to around 19 degrees.

Maurice from Burienradar tells RTL News “Fortunately, the month of September lasts a long time, so there is a chance that we will have a late summer. October can also cause surprises.”

Let’s see if we get lucky and manage to swim in late September or enjoy all the wonderful terraced restaurants! Are you looking forward to the rainy season?

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.
