AMSTERDAM – The KNMI meteorological institute reports that Sunday was the warmed day ever recorded in the month of April. The temperature reached 28.9 degrees at the measuring station in De Bilt, beating the record of 27.8 degrees from 21 April 1968.

The highest temperature measured at a weather station was 29.7 degrees in Westdorpe in Zeeland, the KNMI reported. Though temperatures in Rotterdam reportedly reached as high as 34 degrees during Sunday's marathon.

Saturday's weather also broke records: it became the earliest summer day in history with 27.5 degrees in De Bilt.

The beaches were predictably crowded, with Scheveningen receiving as many visitors as on a July day.

The KNMI expects the warm weather to continue on Monday before cooling down for the rest of the week.
