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.
One of the most frequently asked questions we receive at DutchAmsterdam is this one: Where is Amsterdam?
We’re glad you asked.
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.
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.
Ordering a beer is simple enough, of course, but knowing the Amsterdam lingo for doing so can certainly help foreigners get exactly what they want.
What will it be: Pilsje? Vaasje? Biertje?
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.
One quarter of Amsterdam — ‘the Venice of the North — consists of water, including 100 kilometers (60 miles) of canals.
So it is not surprising that the city sees a number of drowning incidents each year.
What may come as a surprise, though, is the reason many victims end up in the water.
