First “warm” day brings Netherlands temps over 20 degrees
The Netherlands' first official "warm" day of the year was measured in De Bilt on Sunday. A day is classified as "warm" if temperatures reach 20 degrees. At 3:50 p.m. on Sunday, it was 20.1 degrees in De Bilt. Eindhoven reached 20 degrees first on Sunday. According to Weerplaza, it often happens that the first warm day falls in early April. The record for earliest warm day in the Netherlands comes from 1990, when 20.4 degrees was measured in Oost-Maarland on February 24th. The high temperatures are expected to last only for a short while. This week is expected to be cloudy with daily showers or even storms, and only occasional sunshine.
