Winter returns with a vengeance

Cold weather with sleet and snow is set to hit much of the Netherlands on Saturday, weather bureaus said on Friday afternoon.

Cold air will move across all but the south overnight bringing sleet and snow to northern areas.

On Sunday the temperature will remain around zero but it will feel colder in the bitter northeasterly wind. On Sunday night, the temperature may plunge to as much as -10 Celsius in places.

It will remain very cold into next week with temperatures no higher than 4 Celsius during the day. There will be some sunny spells and snow showers.
