Amazing weather forecast!

One thing relating to the weather that I forgot to mention in this post on Amsterdam is the amazing forecast system we have in the Netherlands. I personally use two apps or websites: buienradar.nl and buienalarm.nl.

They can be used on a daily basis (when the weather is “normal”) or 10 times a day (when the weather is like it has been lately: unpredictable, with massive 5 mins showers 5 times a day). They are wonderful tools that we use before going out or planning anything.

Buienradar gives a general overview of the situation, including what is coming:

Today at 10:05 + forecast

Yesterday at 21:45

Forecast for last Friday 14:10. The bluest blue announces strong showers, the small red spots mean "hide!!"

Buienalarm is more precise and sends alarms a few minutes before rain starts for (more or less) your exact position:

Last Friday 12:55. The red "zwaar" means "severe"...
Last Friday 12:55. The red “zwaar” means “severe”…

Crazy weather that we have!
