The Netherlands can look forward to a sunny and warm Easter weekend, according to Weerplaza. The sun will shine every day this long weekend and temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius are expected.

The weekend will start with a sunny maximum of around 21 degrees on Friday. Saturday will be the warmest day, with maximums rising to between 22 and 24 degrees in large parts of the country. "We don't rule out that even 25 degrees can be reached locally", the weather service said. There will be plenty of sunshine and little wind.

Winter

The past days' spring time temperatures will give way to winter weather during the course of this week, with even a bit of snow expected on Friday and Saturday, according to Weerplaza. A powerful high pressure area above Scandinavia is sending cold air into the Netherlands by means of a strong northeasterly wind. The cold weather will last at least into the weekend.

Temperatures in De Bilt climbed to 18.4 degrees Celsius on Tuesday, breaking the record for the warmest February day ever measured in the Netherlands, according to Weerplaza. The previous record dated from Monday, when a maximum of 18.3 degrees was measured in De Bilt. 

Wednesday will also be an unseasonably warm day, with temperatures ranging from 15 degrees along the coast to up to 20 degrees inland. There is therefore a good chance that this record will be broken again.

The coming days will be sunny and unseasonably warm in the Netherlands thanks to a high-pressure area, according to Weerplaza. Wednesday will be the warmest day this week, with maximums around 18 or 19 degrees Celsius. Some places may even get their first 'warm' day of the year at 20 degrees.

Irrigation
Feb 20 '19 08:22

After the exceptionally dry year last year, the Netherlands will continue on the same foot in the coming weeks with little to no rain expected. As the groundwater level has still not recovered to standard everywhere in the Netherlands, this may mean that farmers in some areas will have to kick off the growing season with an irrigation ban. Farmers and waterboards are very concerned, AD reports.

The unseasonably warm weather will remain in the Netherlands for a few days yet, according to Weerplaza. This is because the remnants of tropical hurricanes Leslie an Michael are leaving over the Mediterranean, instead of crossing our country as expected.

On Monday maximum temperatures will rise to between 22 and 25 degrees. It will be mostly sunny and dry. Tuesday will also still be sunny and warm, with maximums between 21 and 25 degrees expected.
