This summer has been the wettest since 1906, with 10cm more rain than in average years, the KNMI weather bureau said on Wednesday.
In total, 35 cm of rain fell in June, July and August, with July particularly wet, the KNMI said.
This contrasts with the dry spring – the driest of the past century with just 4.9 cm of rain, compared with 17.2 cm in a normal year.
