March in Amsterdam is characterized by erratic weather. But the old joke that Holland has four seasons a day is more likely to make sense in March than in any other month.
At least it appears that the rain has taken a vacation this week.
April weather in Amsterdam is a study in contrasts. Sunny and warm one day; rainy and stormy the next.
There will be days with summer-like temperatures and days that remind you of fall.
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. Often this is the month that ice skating is possible. However, the rather mild — and at time even spring-like — weather pattern we’ve been enjoying continues.
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.
Some snow is expected this week.
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.
The weather in Amsterdam during the month of November is best characterized by the word ‘turbulent.’
The Dutch often refer to November as wind– or dolmaand — windy or crazy month.
Amsterdam weather in October: rain, sunshine and anything in between. Right now: a sunny a warm ‘after summer’.
Average temperatures, what to wear, plus: the end of Daylight Savings Time.
Often September in Holland has many days of summer-like weather.
This is a good month in which to visit Amsterdam. But mind you: as always, the weather here is rather changeable. You could just as easily encounter (much) wind and rain.
On average Amsterdam is the sunniest of the three summer months. It is also the rainiest, but showers tend to be brief.
Expect lots of blue skies, dotted with white cumulus clouds.
Amsterdam’s July weather can be precarious: it’s the warmest month of the year, but you can also encounter wet and cool days (or weeks, even). Right now we’ve been having a long hot (and dry) spell. Spell? It’s been dry nearly six weeks now. And we’re having ‘Code Orange’ heatwave weather.
