The Netherlands is in for a light dusting of snow at the weekend but it is not expected to last long, weather forecasters have said.

It will definitely snow on Saturday in the whole of the Netherlands, weather forecaster said, with the eastern part of the country expected to come in for some three centimetres of snow.

On Sunday the snow will have turned to sludge as temperatures rise, putting an end to the current cold spell, NOS weatherman Marco Verhoef said.

Friday’s temperatures will not rise much above freezing in most parts of the country with the exception of some coastal areas where three or four degrees are forecast.

From Monday temperatures will gradually increase to six to seven degrees on Wednesday.
