But first: can we still skate (safely) today? Yes, says De Wit. “It’s beautiful skating weather and the sun is shining brightly.” According to him, the clouds only slowly thicken in the course of the afternoon.
The temperature is rising today, but due to the wind, the wind chill this morning is still between -10 and -15 degrees. “The light will thaw this afternoon”, says De Wit. But what about the ice? “That can handle that. We call this ‘dry thaw’, the ice is hardly affected by it.”
Tonight and tonight the clouds from the west will only get thicker. At the end of the night, light rain can fall in the west, which can cause ice on the frozen ground. “It will be slippery and bacon”, warns De Wit. In the east and north-east of the country, the chance of nuisance from ice storm is greatest later in the morning.
What ice is exactly and how it can quickly turn a road into an ice rink, explains weatherman Marc de Jong of Buienradar:
“In the course of tomorrow, the thaw will fall mercilessly,” says De Wit. The temperature will rise to 2 to 7 degrees by tomorrow afternoon. “Then we’ll be rid of the winter weather for the time being.”
The rest of the week the temperature will rise further to 10 to 13 degrees and the night frost will disappear. It will also rain more. “Soon there will be nothing left of the ice and snow.”
Spring weather next week
Next weekend spring will set foot in the country, with sun and temperatures of 13 to 18 degrees. “Those promise to be nice days”, says De Wit. “With little wind and lots of sun. The T-shirts can be taken out again.”
