The first frost of the autumn hit the Netherlands on Monday night, when the ground temperature fell to as low as -4.3 degrees in Eindhoven.
It did not freeze at the Bilt weather station near Utrecht, so the low temperature does not count as an official records, news agency ANP points out. Last year, the first frost was recorded on November 24.
The last frost recorded was on May 24, when it dipped below freezing at the seaside resort of Wijk aan Zee.
Tuesday will remain cold and sunny but rain is likely to move in from Wednesday. Temperatures will remain on the low side for the time of year, weather bureau Weerplaza said.
However, according to the Telegraaf, there could be some sleet in the south, as snow moves into Germany and Belgium.
