It is very likely that it is going to snow on Saturday. Some places may even have to deal with a real snow layer. According to Weerplaza, the hills in Limburg may even get more than 20 centimeters of snow.

The Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) expects slickness on roads in the southwest tonight caused by wet and later also dry snow. According to the institute, the center and the south of the country can expect a few centimeters of snow during the day tomorrow.

According to Weeronline.nl, the southern half of the country will get some (wet) snow during tonight and Saturday morning. The snowfall will come from the west and start in Zeeland. Along the coast the snow will mostly fall as rain or sleet, but as snow farther inland. "Especially the provinces of Noord-Brabant, Limburg, Gelderland and Utrecht will get a white world." Weeronline speaks of a possible 10 centimeters or more. The agency says that the snowfall will last a long time.

Weerplaza predicts that the snow zone will be located above the country for a large part of Saturday and thereby will ensure slickness and disturbances on roads. The weather bureau states that it is still uncertain how much snow will fall in the center and east of the country, but the meteorologists expects a few centimeters. In the east of Brabant and Limburg the snow layer can grow to over 10 centimeters. There is a chance of more than 20 centimeters of snow in the hills of Limburg. There will be virtually no snowfall north of the line Alkmaar-Zwolle.
