The temperature in the Netherlands was some 6° higher than normal for the time of year last week and the situation will be similar in the coming days, weather forecasters say. 

Around 15° is the usual average for mid October but this week most of the country will enjoy temperatures of between 20° and 23° on several days, according to weather bureau Weerplaza. Only in the far north and Wadden Sea islands will the temperature remain below 20°, Weerplaza said

There may also be some rain in the north on Monday but Tuesday will be dry everywhere, although there may be a misty start. The best of the sunshine will be in Zeeland, Noord-Brabant and Limburg. 

A cooler front will move in on Wednesday but it will remain dry with sunny spells in the south and east. Rain will hit the north west in the evening and spread out across the country overnight. 

Thursday will be cooler than earlier in the week, but still mild for the time of year and Friday will be warmer again. At the weekend, the temperature will go down, with widespread rain, and next week the temperature will be a “more normal” 14-15°, Weerplaza said. 

The KNMI is forecasting a wet weekend with temperatures around the seasonal average and says there is an 80% chance of cooler weather next week, with temperatures below the seasonal average.
