Amsterdam Weather

Weather in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is close to the North Sea coast – and this proximity to the sea gives it a largely mild, temperate, marine climate. As a result the weather in Amsterdam can be very changeable and unpredictable – both during the course of a day, and from one year to another.


Amsterdam Average Weather Conditions


While this climate does tend to protect Amsterdam from extreme temperatures it does also give it a relatively high humidity, giving Amsterdam a healthy amount of precipitation.


The marine climate and flat geography can leave Amsterdam exposed to strong winds - typically prevailing from the West. The wind chill can make the temperature feel a few degrees lower.
