The Netherlands, with its long North Sea coast, has a moderate marine climate; its weather is typically changeable. The spring gives way to summer in June, but the sea’s influence ensures that it will not be too hot. Maastricht is one of the warmest places in the Netherlands. The average daily high temperature in June rises to a comfortable 20 °C, but can vary (almost from one day to the next) between 15 and 27°C. The average daily low temperature in June is 11°C (range: 8-15°C). June is among the clearer months: the sky is (mostly) clear for 40% of the time. But there is always sufficient moisture in the air for a shower, so please be prepared for occasional, moderate rain.
Clothing is informal for all occasions.
The Netherlands are in the Central European Time Zone. Central European Standard Time (CET) is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+2 in summer).
