Rain in July?
Good news: July used to be one of the wettest months of the year, but lately it has ranked third or fourth rainiest.
If you do run into some rain, it’s usually not enough to use an umbrella for. Most showers are brief, and sometimes there’s little more than a drizzle.
Frankly, it’s the luck of the draw. Some years it seems to rain days on end in July. In other years July is quite sunny. Most of the time you’ll find sunny intervals along with nice temperatures — not to warm, not to cold.
When it does rain, the showers tend to be intermittent. One moment you may enjoy the sunshine, and the next a brief shower passes overhead.
Just pop into a store of a café to wait it out. And if it looks like a day with the sort of weather you dislike, plan to visit a museum or two.
When the weather is sunny, do like the Amsterdammers do and enjoy some relaxing time at one of the many outdoor cafés.
What to wear in Amsterdam in July?
Amsterdam weather in July can be fickle. Some years abundant sunshine and dry weather have the overhand. Other years can be rainier and frequently overcast.
Usually you can count on warm — or at least mild — weather, though. Even when it rains in July it never quite gets cold or even chilly.
There is no need to carry an umbrella. Should it rain, showers are usually light and scattered. One moment it drizzles, another it rains.
Pack slacks, shorts, short-sleeved T-shirts, blouses, and tops. Short skirts, sundresses, light sweats, or something dressy for the evening.
Don’t forget to bring swimwear. Amsterdam has an excellent selection of swimming pools and wild swimming spots.
