For the first time since 1996 frost blanketed De Bilt on Kings Night, according to weather agency Weeronline. And with minimum temperatures of -2 degrees measured at De Bit, this was the second coldest King's Night measured since 1949.
King's night was dry, fairly clear and really cold in most places. Only the coastal provinces saw some rain. Frost blanketed most of the country. The lowest temperature was measured at the Twenthe weather station, where it dropped to -3.4 degrees, a new record. That is the lowest temperature ever measured in the Netherlands on April 27th.
