Tuesday will be the hottest day of the week, according to Weerplaza. Maximums will range from 30 degrees Celsius along the coast to over 35 degrees in the east of the country. The day will be filled with sunshine, and blue skies, with a moderate wind occasionally providing some cooling.

Meteorological institute KNMI extended its code yellow warning for persistent heat to Thursday night. The institute initially only had the warning in place until Wednesday morning, expecting the worst of the heat to be over by then. 

During the course of the evening, some light clouds may appear and it will cool down to around 15 degrees. Limburg has a warm night ahead of it, with minimums not dropping below 20 degrees in some places.
