The first snow of the year falls in Heerlen; will there be more?

The first snow of the year fell in Heerlen on Sunday evening at around 8pm. It was just a little snow so did not blanket the streets and no more snow is expected anytime again soon.  But what can we expect for the rest of the week? 

Weather report for the next week


The week starts wet as a low-pressure in the north-east of our country produces extensive cloud cover. This means there will be rain in most of the country, according to Weerplaza online.

The warmest temperatures will be in the southwest of the Netherlands where around 8 degrees are expected.


Rain will continue in the north of the Netherlands but will ease in the south of the country. Temperatures rises to ​​between 6 and 9 degrees.

Wednesday onwards

On Wednesday we can hang our rain jackets up and pop those umbrellas away as it will be dry in most of the country. But it is unlikely to be those glorious and crisp winter days and clouds will prevail and block out any chance of sun.

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.
