Amsterdam weather in June

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.

Amsterdam Weather Forecast, June 2020

Updated during the month of June
current Amsterdam Weather

As a service to our readers we update this page with weather forecasts throughout the month of June.

During the rest of the year the general Amsterdam climate information on this page will be helpful.

Here’s what we already know:

Long Term Forecast

Monday June 1, 2020 until Monday June 8, 2020. High probability (50-60%) of a persistently dry and fairly warm weather pattern with maximum temperatures well above the long-term average values. But there is also a 40% chance that we’ll transition to an unstable and wet weather pattern with midday temperatures below the long-year average values. Netherlands = fickle weather.

Check our July weather forecast for Amsterdam.

Where our weather information comes from

Our weather information is based on long-term averages as reported by various meteorological services, including the Koninklijk Nederlands Meteorologisch Instituut (KNMI) — the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI).

Where to swim in and around Amsterdam

Normally Amsterdam is extremely crowded during June, July and August. That’s why you would get tickets for museums, tours, public transport ahead of time — from our trusted partner, GetYourGuide. During the aftermath of the Coronavirus crisis this is also a good place to check whether or not attractions will be open yet during your planned visit.

Currently (I’m writing this in late May) only about 25% of Amsterdam hotels are open for business. Check these Booking.com hotel deals.

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!

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.
