The good news is that May in Holland often is the sunniest month of the year, with on average up to 15 hours of sunshine a day.
However, this month tends to have as many cold days as it has warm days — and there can even still be night frost, especially during the first half of the month.
Mind you, weather pros say that May 2018 may well end up being the warmest in 300 years!
In terms of weather, June is a good month to visit Amsterdam.

Normally February is the coldest month throughout the Netherlands, and the coldest time of the year to spend in Amsterdam.
But it’s also one of the driest months, and there are quite a few sunny days. That said, there is a slight chance that ice skating on the canals of Amsterdam will be possible this winter.
January tends to be Amsterdam’s coldest month.
You can expect anything from gloomy days with (near) freezing temperatures to deep blue, cloudless skies with lots of sun.
Normally you can count on snow, but not this year. In fact, January 2018 ends with unusually mild weather.
December is not the rainiest month, nor the coldest. But you should expect a fair amount of precipitation — usually in the form of rain or wet snow.
Don’t hold your breath for a white Christmas, though.
