Black ice warning in the north, but temperatures will rise this week


The KNMI weather bureau issued a code amber weather warning for the north of the country on Monday, saying that black ice on the roads has created hazardous driving conditions in Friesland, Groningen and Drenthe.

However, the cold air will be pushed out by warmer temperatures as the day progresses and the weather shifts away from the sub zero conditions of the past two days.

Monday will remain cloudy with rain in the south and temperatures up to 10 Celsius, the KNMI said.

The rest of the year will remain mild, with temperatures in double figures during the day, possibly reaching a new record of 15 Celsius by Thursday and Friday.

However, it will remain overcast with showers all week, although the sun may break through towards next weekend.
