Amsterdam weather in June


June 1st, 2014 | Last updated: June 25th, 2014


In terms of weather, June is a good month to visit Amsterdam.

Overall you can expect quite a bit of sunshine, with lots of blue skies and a normal average temperature of 15° C (59° F) — and daytime highs of 19-20° C (66.2-68° F).

Mind you, the Dutch grew up with this more of less standard weather forecast for this time of the year: In the morning sunshine and here and there’ some rain; in the afternoon sunshine with now and then a shower. (A brilliant forecast, right?)

Fortunately the rain showers tend to be rather short and scattered.

As for the sunny part, it is rare that you see a completely blue sky, because the sun often has to compete with — for the most part — cumulus clouds.

Update, June 25: We’re having typical summer weather in Amsterdam these days: not too warm, not too cold, partially- to rather cloudy with the sun breaking through from time to time — and every once in a while either a smidgen of rain, or a shower.

That weather pattern is expected to continue through at least Tuesday, July 1.

For the most part, temperatures will be at — or slightly below — normal values for the time of year. Normal at the end of June is a midday high of 20.3° C (68.5° F).

Mind you, the weather is not at all uncomfortable, and if you’re the type of person who carries an umbrella ‘just in case’ you’ll soon discover that’s usually a waste of energy. Possible showers will be scattered, are usually very light, and rather brief.

The midday highs through Tuesday, June 24, hover around 18-19° C (64.4-66.2° F).

For the long-range update (Wednesday, July 2 through Wednesday, July 9), see the July weather update.

What to wear in Amsterdam in June

For the most past it’s shorts and T-shirts weather — or, as the case may be, skirts and tops or summer dresses. Short sleeves!
Amsterdam: girl, bike, summer dress
Jeans, light slacks, or — if you tend to be on the cold side — light sweats are fine, too, especially at night.

As always you should plan for a mix of weather: lots of sunshine interspersed with (brief) showers and/or overcast days.

Don’t go overboard with the rain gear. The weather is mild, even when it rains and/or is overcast. If thundershowers are in the forecast it can be muggy as well.

You’ll just have to play it by ear. If it looks like it’s going to rain for quite some time, visit a museum and/or catch a movie. If only showers are expected, enjoy the outdoors and pop into a pub, coffeeshop (or coffee house) or an eatery for a while.

When it’s sunny and the skies are blue, you can take fantastic photos in Amsterdam.

Just remember: your pictures will have the bluest skies when you shoot them while standing with your back turned toward the sun. Otherwise the sky tends to come out rather white.
