Sunny, warm weather should return to the NL soon

While the week started out on the cool side for the Netherlands, sunnier and warmer weather is on the horizon, Weerplaza expects. Temperatures will start climbing again on Thursday. And while plenty of sunshine is expected, there is also a chance of a shower here and there.

On Monday a moderate to fairly strong north-westerly wind is bringing clouds and showers into the Netherlands, especially the northern half of the country. "Because the wind blows from the relatively cooler North Sea, the temperature is on the low side for this phase of July." Maximums will range between 16 degrees on the Wadden to 20 degrees in Limburg.

On Tuesday and Wednesday the core of a high pressure area will be close to the Netherlands, bringing with it more sunshine. These days will be less windy, and therefore slightly warmer with maximums up to 22 degrees expected.

Warmer air will blanket the Netherlands from Thursday, gradually bringing in higher maximum temperatures, the site predicted. Afternoon readings on Thursday are expected to range between 20 and 24 degrees, though there is also an increased chance of a few showers.

Similar warm temperatures are likely to continue through all of next week, with low temperatures in the mid-teens. In Maastricht, the termometer could even reach 27, weather website Weeronline predicted.
