The typical weather featured in Rotterdam is fairly temperate and enjoyable. Rotterdam; the second largest city in the Netherlands is partially situated below sea level and benefits from relatively warmer weather than other cities further north or inland such as Amsterdam. Rotterdam experiences warm summers, cool winters and substantial amounts of rainfall year round. Many Dutch residents choose to reside in Rotterdam throughout the peak summer months as herds of tourists roam the streets of Amsterdam.
A typical summer in Rotterdam sees average temperatures of 19°C to 20°C and on occasions reaches the mid twenties. The weather during this time is rarely ever over hot and even during the hottest months of July and August it is unlikely you will feel the uncomfortable humidity common to most major cities in the summer. The summertime sees many tourists head to the cityâs favourable artificial beach next to the Nieuwe Maas shipping canal on Boompjeskade to take advantage of the longer hours of sunshine..
The overall climate in Rotterdam can be very unpredictable, particularly during the cooler months of autumn. November commonly sees quite bizarre weather as one moment it can be sunny and the next can become cloudy and overcast. Average temperatures during autumn start from highs of 18°C in September down to lows of 4°C in November. Although rainfall during this time is rather high, it can also be quite erratic.
The winter months in Rotterdam have much less to offer and the first month of the season sees high amounts of rainfall and unpleasing temperatures. Nevertheless precipitation levels decrease significantly in January and February. Average daylight and sunshine hours are reduced by more than half of what is featured in the summer and the chance of frosts and snow become more common. Although temperatures do hang around 4°C or lower, it is not likely for the city to see the climate drop sub-zero. Alike any season there are still benefits from visiting Rotterdam in the winter months as the price of accommodation is much cheaper and crowds are lessened.
By the end of March itâs fair to say that spring is well and
truly underway as temperatures rise to double digits and sunshine hours
increase. Similar to autumn the weather can still be very impulsive as one day
the skies will be blue filled with sunlight whereas the next can be dull and
rainy. If youâre visiting during the spring itâs always a good idea to pack
clothing that covers all possibilities allowing for both warm and cool days.
