It’s official: March 30 is the warmest day of the year so far

Thursday is the first official warm day of the year, with the temperature topping 20 degrees at the De Bilt weather station near Hilversum, weather forecasters said. The temperature had already topped 20 degrees in Eindhoven earlier this week, but the temperature must be recorded in De Bilt to be official. On Thursday, the temperature in the Eindhoven region reached almost 22 degrees. Last year, the first official warm day fell on April 3 and in 2015 on April 10. The normal temperature for this time of year is around 11 degrees. Friday will also be warm with sunny spells, but there may be some rain in the evening, which will bring temperatures down again for the weekend.   More >
