Indian summer coming to the Netherlands
The weather this last week has been, well, let’s face it, dreary to say the least. Gone are the scorching days of summer and it seems that the Dutch autumn is nearing closer. For those who are less than impressed with the cold, wet weather, the following news should cheer you up: there’s an Indian summer on its way!
Unusually high temperatures in the Netherlands
An Indian summer occurs when temperatures are unusually high between mid-September and November. Normally, temperatures are around 17C to 18C during these months. However, according to Weerplaza, due to the effects of hurricane Helene, next week we may experience temperatures of above 25C.
According to several weather models, at the start of next week, warm air will reach the Netherlands, pushing temperatures up to between 25C and 30C for a few days. Now that’s what we call an Indian summer! Of course, whether or not the hottest air will get to the Netherlands or not is still very uncertain.
Enjoy the warm Dutch weather
Temperatures are expected to rise on Tuesday, September 18 and Wednesday, September 19, to around 22C to 25C. Don’t forget to enjoy the warm weather for the first half of next week, as it is unclear what the second half of the week will do in terms of temperatures.
