Summer 2003 is over now as autumn weather has conquered The Netherlands. Yesterdays highs were 25°C or more, but today it's 10 degrees or more cooler. Yesterday evening a couple of active storms crossed the country with high wind gusts and local thunder and graupel. Also today many showers formed in a polar airmass.

Warm, sunny and dry weather during the last week. Highs above 25°C at many places and even above 30 degrees in the southeast.
Tomorrow evening an active cold front will bring much more unsettled and cooler weather to The Netherlands.

Yesterday evening a moderate thunderstorm caused wind gusts up to 45 knots near Hoek van Holland. Earlier that day a shower passed Soest. I saw a beautiful rainbow that lasted for about 15 minutes.
Added new pictures to Rainbow.

September 8 2003:
Friday, September 5, had summerlike conditions. Lots of sunshine and highs near 25 degrees. The weekend was much more unsettled with rain and showers. Yesterday two landspouts were observed, one near Nieuw Lekkerland and one near Assen. Also, many funnel clouds were seen.
Today I chased a couple of showers in northwestern parts of Holland. I haven't seen any spouts, but there were two waterspouts near Den Helder.
My chaselog and pictures can be viewed here.

September 1 2003:
Added new Photo of the Month.
August 2003 was very warm and very dry in Holland. Also, it was rather sunny.
Summer 2003 did not break the record temperature from 1947. Due to the cool end of August the mean temperature was about 0,1 less than the 18,7 degrees from 1947. 2003 did break the record for the driest summer of the last century.

Last weekend about 4 spouts have been observed near Dutch coastal areas.
