The provinces of Noord-Holland, Zuid-Holland and Utrecht were faced with heavy rainfall on Wednesday. The A20 to Rotterdam had to be closed for several hours due to flooding. Streets in various places were also under water, NU.nl reports.

Public works department Rijkswaterstaat closed the A20 highway at the Kleinpolderplein junction around 11:00 a.m. because the road surface was under water to such an extent that it was unsafe to drive over it. The highway was reopened around 1:15 p.m.

This July was the driest ever since rainfall measurements started in the Netherlands. Only 11 millimeters of rain fell nation wide this month, breaking the previous record of 16 millimeters in July 1921, Weeronline reported on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, the last day in July, there is a chance of some rain in the north and west of the country. At most another 1 millimeter of rain will fall. Weeronline therefore feels safe to say the record is broken.

It is currently drier in the Netherlands than it was on July 25th, 1976 - the driest year in the Netherlands since measurements started. The average precipitation across the Netherlands stands at 261 mm on Wednesday. In 1976 it was 257 mm, according to Weeronline.

Whether the absolute drought record from 1976 will be broken this year, depends on what August's rainfall will look like, according to the weather service. In 1976 the precipitation deficit increased to 363 mm in August.

There is a 60 percent chance of a national heatwave in the Netherlands next week, according to Weeronline. Widespread maximums of between 30 and 32 degrees Celsuis are expected from Tuesday onwards.

On Friday and over the weekend, maximums will range between 22 and 25 degrees along the coast and between 25 and 30 degrees in the rest of the country. "In fact, the heat wave already started in the vast majority of the country. It is only a matter of time until many weather stations meet the conditions", according to Weeronline.

On Sunday the Netherlands had an average precipitation shortage of 155 mm, placing 2018 officially in the 5 percent driest years since the beginning of rainfall measurements in 1906. That means that since 1906, only 5 percent of years were as dry in the Netherlands as it currently is, Weeronline reports.

The precipitation deficit is the difference between the amount of rainfall and evaporation. If more water evaporates than rain falls from the air, there is a precipitation deficit. If it is the other way around, there is a precipitation surplus.

Especially the middle, west and southwest parts of the country are experiencing record drought, despite some rainfall over the past days. The biggest rain shortages are in Twente, the Achterhoek, the northern parts of the Veluwe and parts of Noord-Limburg.
