The temperature is set to hit 30 degrees in southern parts of the country on Monday despite a misty start in some places, weather bureaus said.
Tuesday and Wednesday are set to be even warmer and the heatwave could carry over to Thursday, according to weather forecaster Weerplaza.
‘If we look back over the past 100 years, I expect weather records to tumble on a daily basis,’ Weerplaza spokesman Michiel Severin told broadcaster NOS. The current September record temperature dates from 1919 when the temperature hit 29.6 degrees.
The KNMI is also forecasting record temperatures but says there is likely to be rain on Friday and at the weekend, when temperatures will be back to a more seasonal 20 degrees.
