Weather set to improve in the Netherlands (ever so slightly)

So it’s that time of the week again when we say ‘hallelujah’ and run out of the office, not to return for a couple of days (well, 3 days this weekend). But the real question is, it is safe to venture outside this weekend? For the most part, yes. Are we going to catch a tan? Probably, if we catch the sun incredibly easily. For the people living in the Netherlands who are used to the high temperatures, these may disappoint you. For Brits like me, anything over 20 degrees Celsius and you’ve won us over. Sooo, what’s it going to be like?

Hint: The sun is coming back…


Saturday isn’t going to be too warm – but it’s definitely not considered cold. It’s 18 degrees Celsius, and thankfully it’s not windy at all (because that really makes the difference). The sun is only expected to show for 60% of the day, so it’s going to be pretty overcast for the most part.

Sunday is a much better day, with temperatures reaching 22 degrees Celsius, with clear blue skies for much of the day. This is a very pleasant day to go out for a walk or maybe for a bit of boating. So Sunday is definitely the day to go out.

Next week

I won’t give too much away, but it’s looking like a fine ‘ol week, with sunny spells and temperatures just above 20 degrees Celsius. So it could be better, but remember it’s only May, we have the whole summer to come. 😉 Check out Monday – it’s definitely getting better! And we have a day off too!
