Tuesday likely the first summer day of the year
Temperatures will rise considerably in the coming days, and thermometers will likely reach the first summer-like temps of the year on Tuesday. Weeronline reports that maximums can climb to 25 to 27 degrees in several places. Thermometers must reach at least 25 degrees to speak of a summer day.
Monday will see maximums of 21 to 24 degrees with lots of sunshine. The warmest places in the southeast could reach 25 degrees, making today the first regional summer day of the year. On Tuesday, the chance for the first regional summer day is much greater. Inland temperatures will climb to between 25 and 27 degrees on a large scale. For a national summer day, thermometers must top 25 degrees at the weather station in De Bilt.
According to Weeronline, the Netherlands sees the first summer temperatures on average around the beginning of May. But last year, they were measured much earlier. Thermometers climbed to 25 degrees for the first time on 31 March 2021.
From Wednesday, it will be a little colder again. But with maximums ranging between 14 degrees on the Wadden and 24 degrees in the southeast, it will still be on the warm side for this time of year. The cooling temperatures are accompanied by a few showers but not much rain. This means that the drought will become more acute in the coming week.
