The rain which plagued the south of the Netherlands on Friday will move northwards at the weekend, bringing showers and sunny spells to most places.

The temperature will be no higher than 15 Celsius in the north, and little change is expected into next week, the KNMI said. The worst of the rain is likely to be on Wednesday and Thursday.

The KNMI’s long-range forecast sees more of the same up to next weekend, but there is a 40% to 50% chance of drier weather returning later in the month.

Meanwhile, September will enter the record books as warm and sunny, with a new September temperature record – 35.1 Celsius – set at the Gilze-Rijen weather station on September 15, the KNMI said.

With an average temperature of 15.2 Celsius, September was warmer than usual and the temperature topped 20 Celsius on 16 days. It was also sunny, with 201 hours of sunshine, compared with 143 hours in an average year.
