The KNMI has warned of widescale slippery conditions and snow drifts
by Thomas Ansell
With the weather in the North likely to remain below zero until next week, the Dutch meteorological office (KNMI) has put out weather warnings today for Groningen and Friesland. The two Provinces (along with North-Holland), are ‘code Orange‘ for slippery conditions and snow drifts. The same applies for the Wadden Islands; whilst a ‘code Yellow’ alert will be in place for the whole country through Tuesday.
‘Snow-storm Darcy’ battered the Netherlands on Sunday evening, leaving snow drifts and slippery conditions throughout Monday. Public transport remains patchy today, with a skeleton NS service running, only one train running per hour between Groningen and Leeuwarden, and bus services just getting up and running across the North.
Temperatures across the Northern Netherlands will remain somewhere between 4 degrees and 6 below zero centigrade, according to the KNMI, with further snow possible. This evening, it is likely to be colder than minus 10. Strong winds will make it feel about ten degrees colder in any case.
