October 25 2006:
Dutch weather was mild to very mild during the last couple of weeks. It turned more unsettled from last weekend on, but temperatures remained very high for the time of year. Tomorrows highs could exceed well over 20 degrees again!
From October 12th untill the 19th I visited the Greek island of Crete. No summer weather there with temperatures below normal and many showers and thunderstorms and strong winds from time to time. Flash flooding caused massive damage at some locations. My holiday was ok though, seen many places of this beautiful island. I will add some weather related photos at this site shortly.

October 8 2006:
A real outbreak of low-topped supercells occurred on October 2nd. At least one of those produced a tornado in southern parts of the Netherlands. The day after supercells formed again and another tornado was observed in central parts of the country. Oscar van der Velde and I chased a supercell on Sunday. Later that day I was able to shoot some lightning from my balcony. I will add photos shortly!
Last Friday and yesterday strong winds and heavy rain at times made a real Autumn scenery outdoors. The days ahead will see drier, sunnier and milder conditions again.

October 1 2006:
Added a new Photo of the Month
Last September was the warmest autumn month in the Netherlands since at least 1706! It was even 1,5 degrees warmer than last August. Furthermore the month was sunny and extremely dry. And very unusually for our nation; as far as I know no land- or waterspouts have been observed!
October starts of more unsettled with a couple of showers, a strong wind once in a while and temperatures dropping to a more normal value.
