On holiday in the Netherlands.
The name Netherlands is based on the flat landscape that dominates this small country. The Netherlands is located in north-western Europe. The weather is therefore partly determined by the influences of the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. It creates a temperate maritime climate with moderate grey winters and changeable summers in which there is room for warm and tropical days, but also the chance of cooler rainy days. Typical for the Dutch weather is that there can be regular and strong to very strong winds at the coastal areas. Particularly in the autumn and winter, the wind can become stormy or there can be storms.
The climate in the Netherlands
According to the Köppen system, the Netherlands has a temperate maritime climate (type Cfb) with relatively mild winters, mild summers and precipitation throughout the year. The Netherlands owes this climate to the influence of the North Sea. Many Dutch people think that the Netherlands has a very wet climate, but this is a misconception which is mainly based on feelings and not on figures. On average, precipitation falls in the form of rain, snow, sleet or hail 7% of the time in the Netherlands. That is equivalent to approximately one hour and forty minutes of precipitation per day. In total, on an annual basis, about 800 to 900 millimetres of precipitation falls. In extremely dry years, the counter can get stuck under five hundred millimetres locally; in very wet years, the precipitation total can be as much as a thousand millimetres. On 8 March 2013, a precipitation record was set that can never be broken again: for the first time since the recording of weather figures, it officially rained during all 24 hours of the day in De Bilt. This means that at least 0.1 millimetres of precipitation was recorded during every measurement (every ten minutes).
