We’re certain this time!

A wave of cold air from the North Pole and very warm air from Southern Europe threatens to produce snow in the northeast of the Netherlands, and heavy rainfall in the southern parts of the country, reports DVHN. According to the weather reports, the Netherlands will experience two different types of weather in the following days: the southeastern part of the country is expected to experience heavy rain, (temperatures could reach 10 degrees Celsius), while the northeastern part will face icy rain and snow, with a maximum of 2 degrees Celsius.
Snow or rain?
The differences in weather are expected to be particularly large on Friday. In the northeast it could snow for several hours, with temperatures sitting at around freezing. If this prediction comes true, a 10 centimeters blanket of snow is not out of the question. The province of Groningen has the greatest chance of snow. In the middle of the Netherlands and the south, however, there will be heavy rain with temperatures in the double digits.
The exact dividing line between cold air with snow, and warm air with rain is still uncertain. A shift of the dividing line by even a few miles can make a difference between fall and winter, as in those few kilometers, the temperature can rise 5 degrees.
Colder on Saturday
On Saturday, the boundary between cold and soft air will be much further south, according to Weeronline. That means that almost the entire country will end up in the cold air: “We expect much less rainfall then. The south has the greatest chance of some rain or (sleet) snow.”
“If there will be snow in the northeast, the temperatures will barely rise above zero. Elsewhere it will be a maximum of 2 degrees. On Friday night it can become freezing cold with extensive frost in the northeast and east, where the temperature will drop below -5 degrees.”
After the weekend, the weather is expected to still be cold, however, halfway through the week it will probably get significantly warmer again.
