The final day of 2022 and New Year’s Day were the warmest on record and the first week of January has also been unseasonably warm for the time of year, weather forecasters say.
With temperatures of between 10 and 14 Celsius, it is twice as warm as in a normal January, and there is little difference between the day and the night time temperatures.
The phenomenon is not only in the Netherlands and record temperatures are being recorded all over Europe, thanks to a warm, southwesterly wind.
The coming weekend will also be warm, but wet and there is little change likely, well into January, according to weather bureau KNMI. It puts the chance of a switch to wintry showers and night frosts at no more than 20% for the coming weeks.
