People planning to celebrate King’s Day on Saturday with a visit to a free market or a festival are being warned to take a coat and umbrella.
According to most weather bureaus, the maximum temperature will be no higher than 13 degrees, there will be frequent showers and a strong south-westerly wind as well.
‘Once you have been soaked through, you are more likely to end up with hypothermia, particularly if combined with too much alcohol,’ a spokesman for the Red Cross told the Parool.
In particular, parents should make sure their children don’t cool off too much, the organisation said.
The day will start off cloudy with wind and rain but the cloud will clear and there will be some sunny spells in the late morning. By lunch time there will be more showers and in the afternoon there could even be some thunder, Weerplaza said.
Saturday evening will also be wet, but the north and east of the country have the best chance of dry weather.
Sunday and Monday will be similar and the KNMI sees little change next week.
