Across the Netherlands this weekend, there was seemingly a cycle of weather that repeated every few hours: everything would get very warm, extremely humid, and then followed by torrential downpours. It seems that this cycle will continue today, with the Dutch meteorological office (KNMI) placing yellow weather warnings across the whole country for heavy thunderstorms from 13:00 today.
As per the KNMI, it is likely that Groningen, Friesland, and Drenthe will experience “lots of rain, and also possibly hail, in a short amount of time”. Up to 20mm of rain could fall in individual downpours.
The Office recommend avoiding open water and large open spaces between 13:00 and 23:00 today. The same warning is in place for tomorrow, again between 13:00 and 23:00.
Just after lunch time today it is likely that temperatures will reach 24 degrees centigrade, with a humidity level of over 90 percent. Tonight is likely to be 16 degrees and raining.
The next week or two, according to the KNMI, is likely to be cooler, with a high chance of rain daily.
