De Wit says the weather for the next few days is “fantastic” for meteorologists. It’s still a little boring today, he says. “A little gray, but dry and maybe a little sunny in the afternoon.” The current temperature is about 9 degrees, a little colder than the average for this time of year.
But after this calm weather it becomes turbulent. Throughout the night, it becomes cloudy in the northwest and enters a cold country with rain. Then cool to about 5 degrees.
On Easter Monday, the cold front with rain moves southeast throughout the morning. Still, it’s still cold. “This is because of the icy air coming from the North Pole,” De Wit says. The temperature does not exceed 6 degrees, but the wind ensures that the wind temperature can be below zero, especially during winter showers.
Very special, less than a week ago we had summer time and it was hotter than 20 degrees. “The saying ‘April does what it wants’ doesn’t exist at all. If the wind comes from the north, it can get very cold and if the wind comes from the south, the temperatures will rise.”
But that is not the case at the moment. Tomorrow we will have to count on rain, hail and wet snow showers throughout the day with the possibility of storms and strong gusts of wind. “In the morning it can even turn white locally. But that won’t last long, at most an hour.”
Strong gusts of wind
In the afternoon and evening the wind in the Wadden area can increase to storms (such as), wind force 8 or 9. Further inland the wind blows a little less, but during showers still gusts of up to 75 kilometers per hour are possible.
Also on Tuesdays and Wednesdays it is still shady and cold with winter showers. There is a strong northwest wind constantly. During night clearings and a decreasing wind, it can produce light frosts inside.
Here’s how it’s hot (or cold) with you now:
It won’t get any quieter until Thursday, De Wit says. There are no longer any doubts about winter showers and from time to time there is sunshine. It is dry in most places. The wind decreases slightly and the temperature will rise around 10 degrees on Friday.
De Wit says the real spring time is a long way off. “From what we can see, the temperature doesn’t exceed 10 degrees.”
