Motorists can expect a busy rush hour on Monday morning due to icy roads and showers. Meteorological institute KNMI issued a code yellow warning for all provinces except Friesland. 

The northeastern parts of the country should be careful of icy roads the entire day. In the rest of the country, the iciness should melt away during the course of the morning. 

Rush hour is always busier on Mondays, and the weather conditions will not help the matter, Rijkswaterstaat warns. The KNMI warns motorists to adjust their driving behavior - drive carefully and keep a safe following distance. 

Afternoon temperatures will climb to around 5 degrees on Monday. The rest of the week will be somewhat warmer, according to Buienradar. Tuesday and Wednesday will see some sunshine and little chance of showers. Thursday is expected to be rainy, but maximum temperatures will climb to around 10 degrees.
