Tomorrow is the last chance to say goodbye to the sunshine

Brrr! Last week was chilly for the Netherlands, but we’re sad to say there is more to come. If you’re looking to say sayonara to the sunshine though, tomorrow gives you one last chance with temperatures up to 23 degrees.ย 

The south and east will get the warmer temperatures, although it’s still forecast to be cloudy with light rain across most of the country. The north will be pulling on more warm clothes than the rest with the mercury forecast to hit just 16 degrees. The middle of the country will only be two degrees higher.

That means a hearty goodbye to warm weather as the Netherlands begins its yearly descent into coats, gloves and scarves territory. “The chance is really very small that we will rise above 20 degrees in the coming weeks,” explained Maurice Middendorp from Buienradar to RTL Nieuws. “In October it will certainly not happen again.”

But, it’s not all bad news! While the nights at this time of year usually force you to burrow down in your blankets we’re experiencing a short reprieve with the first night frost not expected for another two weeks.

The nighttime temperature at the moment is hovering around 14 degrees – double what it has been in previous years. “That is special,” said Middendorp. “It does not cool as much because there are a lot of clouds that work as a blanket.”

Are you looking forward to things cooling down, or are you begging Summer to make an unexpected return? Let us know in the comments below!
