First official severe frost since 2013 a fact

The first official severe frost of this winter season, with the mercury dropping below -10 degrees, is a fact. Just after midnight, the temperature dropped below -10 degrees in De Bilt on Friday (namely -10.9). Never before has the period without severe frost lasted so long.

The last official severe frost was measured eight years ago on January 25, 2013. Then it became -11.4 degrees in De Bilt.

Incidentally, it became much colder in other places last night than in De Bilt. For example, it was even very severe in Hupsel (Gelderland): -14.7 degrees.

In the last century there were only two series of three winters in a row without official severe frosts. This was in the winters of 1959-1961 and 1988-1990. At the beginning of this century, that record was already equaled twice from 2000 and 2006 and after 2013 there were no fewer than seven winters in a row without severe frost in De Bilt.

Halfway through the last century, De Bilt counted an annual average of five days with severe frost. In the current climate, this number has decreased to one day.
