The last half of this week will be considerably warmer than what is usual for this time of year, according to Weeronline. Many places in the south of the country will see maximums climb to 20 degrees on Thursday, while high temperatures are usually around 13 degrees late in October. 

In addition to being reasonably warm, Wednesday and Thursday will also be mostly dry with regular sunshine. Afternoon temperatures on Wednesday will range between 15 and 17 degrees in large parts of the country. Noord-Brabant and Limburg may already see thermometers climb to 19 degrees. 

Thursday will be a bit warmer, with maximums up to 19 degrees expected in most of the country, and 20 degrees in Noord-Brabant and Limburg. The Wadden area will be cooler at around 16 degrees.

Friday and Saturday will also be mild for this time of year, with maximums between 15 and 17 degrees. But Friday evening and Saturday will be a lot more windy and rainy. From Sunday onwards, the weather will turn towards winter, according to the weather service.
