When you look out the window with despair at another grey, rainy and windy day you can be certain of one thing – the Dutch will be complaining about it too. It’s the national sport.

The weather in The Netherlands can best be described as changeable, with the average winter temperature 3C and the summer 17C. January and February are the coldest months and the summers can be humid.

The fairly stable temperature is due to the country’s maritime climate, meaning that the sea – which stays relatively constant in temperature – moderates seasonal variations. It can, however, rain any time in the year.

Well, those canals have got to be filled somehow.
