Relief is underway, as temperatures throughout the Netherlands dropped back into the twenties this week, according to the KNMI weather bureau. They are expected to remain there for the rest of the month and the first week of July.

There’s also a higher chance of rain during the coming week.

This follows a record-setting dry spell broken earlier this month, when the country went 34 days without rain, according to weather bureaus Weeronline and Weerplaza, which base their claims on the readings in De Bilt. 

The previous record dates from 2007 when it did not rain in the area between April 4 and May 6.
