One week difference: this is the contrast in the weather

The contrast could hardly be greater: we were on the skates last week and drove the sleigh; this week we enjoy a sun-drenched, spring-like weekend.

The first official soft day of the year is a fact. At 13.10 oclock the mercury reached 15 degrees in De Bilt, reports Weer.nl.

Because it is still winter, it is not said of a spring day, but of a soft day, which is now 2.5 weeks earlier than average.

Saturday afternoon the temperature can rise to 17 degrees, in the southeast even to 19 degrees.
