Most ferocious summer storm in Dutch history
Fortunately we here at the canal haven't been affected much by the extreme weather. In the 'Scheveningse Bos' and several other areas uprooted trees and broken branches can be found all around. A storm like would have been more common in Autumn when all the leaves have already fallen (this way they catch less wind).
The weather in general
Since the country is small there is little variation in climate from region to region, although the marine influences are less inland. Rainfall is distributed throughout the year with a dryer period from April to September.
Especially in fall and winter strong atlantic low-pressure systems can bring gales and uncomfortable weather. Sometimes easterly winds can cause a more continental type of weather, warm and dry in the summer, but cold and clear in the winter with temperatures sometimes far below zero. The Netherlands is a flat country and has often breezy conditions, although more in the winter than in the summer, and more among the coastal areas than inland.
In case of extreme weather the Dutch Severe Weather Centre keeps you updated on the weather and the most hardazous areas.
