Meteorological institutions warn for extreme heat on Tuesday and Wednesday. It is predicted that the feeling temperatures in the east and northeast of the Netherlands can be up to 38 degrees on Wednesday. It is according to MeteoConsult 'not inconceivable' that the Dutch record temperature of 38.6 degrees will be broken.
The warm weather is due to a low pressure area northwest of Spain. This causes a flow of tropical air that quickly comes our way from Spain and North Africa. Today, the mercury will already hit the 30 degrees in Maastricht at the beginning of the evening.
