Summer temperature lovers in the Netherlands have to be patient. Remembrance Day and Liberation Day, with a maximum of about 9 degrees, can get into the top 10 coldest May 4 and May 5 measurements. There is no real prospect of better weather.
"On the Liberation Day, there is a harsh northwestern wind all over the country and hail showers, and perhaps storms," says the meteorologist Nicolien Kroon of Buienradar. "It'll feel a little cooler because it's a strong northwest. It's not really comfortable."
17 degrees southeast
If you still have outdoor activities, plan them today or tomorrow. It will be calm and almost dry in the coming days, and the temperature is normal. Light rain can sometimes fall in the East today. There are sunny seasons in the west and southwest. It will be 13 degrees north and 17 degrees southeast.
Tomorrow it will also be pretty good. From the northeast, the sun rises more often. It'll be around 16 degrees. Wednesday is a dry day with a regular sun.
So enjoy it. Since it will change from Thursday to a few showers and the coming weekend will be just cold. With the northwest wind rising, mercury drops to 10 degrees.
"So if you go to the festival of liberation, you'll feel comfortable and close together," says Nicolien Kroon.
Now it's hot for you:
