Amsterdam is beautiful and interesting any time of the day or year — in sunshine, rain, or snow. In general it has a mild climate, but at times the joke that says you can experience four seasons a day here almost seems true.
It’s hard to say what the weather in Amsterdam is going to be like, but we try anyway. We provide weekly weather forecasts, along with month to month details on what you can expect (and what to wear).
Make sure you visit the Amsterdam Weather homepage.
Expect lots of blue skies, dotted with white cumulus clouds.
Lots of sun and blue skies, with the usual clouds and/or (brief) rain showers every now and then. Check your Amsterdam weather forecast here.

There will be days with summer-like temperatures and days that remind you of fall.

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.
Don’t hold your breath for a white Christmas, though.
