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.
Thus far January 2020 has been rather mild. For the time being you can forget about snow, and you won’t see any frozen canals. Overcast skies aplenty, though.
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.
What kind of weather will we have in February 2020?
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.
There will not be a white Christmas, though. And it won’t be cold enough for ice skating on the canals. Indeed, it looks like the changeable but rather mild weather pattern will hang around.
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. Oh, and it’s the rainiest month of the year.
Amsterdam weather in October: rain, sunshine and anything in between. The month ends with a couple of sunny but cold days.
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).
In terms of weather, June is a good month to visit Amsterdam.
Lots of sun and blue skies, with the usual clouds and/or (brief) rain showers every now and then.
The good news is that May in Holland often is the sunniest month of the year, with on average up to 15 hours of sunshine a day.
