New Year's Dive to feature warmest sea water in years
New Year's divers can expect "unusually warm" water when jumping on on January 1st, according to Weeronline. According to the weather service, it is hard to say what the outside temperature will be like on January 1st, but the sea water at least will be warmer than it's been in years, ANP reports. During the coming days, including Christmas, afternoon temperatures will range between 11 and 15 degrees. After that there is a 70 percent chance of mild to very mild weather with temperatures between 6 and 12 degrees. Amsterdam divers can take the plunge in one of four locations this year, according to Het Parool. Divers can participate in dives on the IJburg, in the Gaasperplas at the Zuidoever beach, in the Sloterplas at the beach on Varkensbaai and at the rowing center Berlagebrug on the Amstel.
