So keep that umbrella in the closet! A high-pressure area spreads over the Netherlands from tomorrow. From the southwest, the clouds break more and in the south the temperature can reach 20 degrees. It stays dry and there is little wind. The autumn is therefore not expected to be wet. Friday at 22.02, the sun is perpendicular to the equator and its “equally long” day and night: the beginning of the astronomical autumn. The sun is probably a bit hesitant on Friday, and in the west it’s even a bit of a fall in the afternoon, but on weekends the sun breaks well and it seems like a bit of ‘after summer’. Temperatures range from 18 to 19 degrees north to 21 degrees in the south. ,, Very pleasant so. And there is also little wind, ideal for a beautiful walk in nature, “said meteorologist Michiel Severin.

1. Do not run your engine while scratching. This firstly has no sense, secondly it is bad for the environment, and thirdly it is bad for your wallet. A cold engine consumes more fuel. In addition, the fan only blows hot air in a warm engine and it takes a while before the engine has warmed up.
