Enjoy an exceptional spring weekend and that enjoyment lasts a few days, with Wednesday possibly 20 degrees tapping.
Meanwhile, the first heat record of 2021 is inside. Around 12.45 pm the temperature in De Bilt rose to 14.9 degrees and thus it is officially the warmest February 21 ever measured, reports Weer.nl. The old record stood at 14.8 degrees, in 1949.
In the south of the country it is even softer. The warmest is in Twente, the thermometer already indicates 17 degrees. In the course of the afternoon, the southeast may become even softer. Weer.nl states that the new record “fits well in the trend of the warming climate”. For example, last year – looked at the temperature – only two cold records were achieved compared to 24 heat records. That trend has been seen this whole century. More heat records are broken than cold records. Many are expected this year.
Sunday Sunday it will be 17 or 18 degrees in many places in the Netherlands. Only in the north, especially in the Wadden region, the temperatures will be lower. It cools down there because of the cold water of the Wadden Sea, but also because of the wind.

Around noon its already 12-15 degrees. In the afternoon, the mercury rises further and finally the ceilings are between 15 and 19 degrees with the highest values in the southeast.
