After last week’s sub-zero conditions, Monday became the warmest January 25 on record, with the temperature reaching 13.4C at the De Bilt weather station.
The previous record of 13.3C dates from 1990.
In Maastricht, the temperature rose to as high as 16.2C, equalling the previous record set almost one hundred years ago.
Temperatures will remain around 10-12C for the next few days, the KNMI weather bureau said.
