Motorists warned to be careful as temperatures dip to -10 Celsius

This morning’s heavy snowfall over much of the Netherlands caused few serious problems on the roads and railways, although hundreds of flights were cancelled at Schiphol airport.

The evening rush hour is expected to be busier than normal, but according to motoring organisation ANWB, most roads have been cleared of snow.
Nevertheless, the KNMI weather bureau is warning drivers that roads may be extremely slippery on Friday evening, as temperatures drop to as low as -15 Celsius in sheltered eastern areas.
On Saturday it will remain very cold with sunny spells and another heavy overnight frost. The wintry weather is set to continue well into next week.
According to, the snowfall was heaviest in Nijmegen and Wageningen, where up to 20cm of snow was recorded.
