It’s going to be a cold, wet week, and there could be frost tonight


There is little change in the weather forecast for the coming week, with rain likely most days and temperatures no higher than 12 or 13 degrees, weather forecasters said on Monday.

And the clear skies in many places on Monday evening could lead to light frosts in northern parts, as the temperature dips to no higher than two degrees at night, according to the KNMI weather bureau.

Weerplaza is more pessimistic – it says the temperature could drop to as low as -4 or -5 degrees in parts of Friesland and a ground frost is likely nationwide.

If the chilly weather continues into next week, this May could be one of the coldest on record, weather forecasters say.
