Current Weather conditions in Amsterdam

Good afternoon. This is more a question for the inhabitants of the greatest city in the world, Amsterdam!

Although the weather here in England is rather chilly i have heard the NL and conutries close to them in Europe is currently witnessing tempratures more acclimatised to that of the Antarctica.

Could someone update me in the current conditions as i fly in on Saturday morning and do not want to get caught out in my bermuda shorts and flip flops! Similarly i do not want to turn up in full thermal gear only to end up sweating out in the corner of the local FEBO.

Your response would be greatly appreciated.

Bring arctic clothing http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2759794

Looking outside I can see a few worried looking brass monkeys trying to keep warm.

NS is operating a reduced service all week due to the weather and they are planning an ice skating race on the Keizergracht and some of the canal boat toars are cancelled due to ice.

Does that answer your question? Pack some thermals and only wear Bemuda shorts if they are full length and insulated.

Ronaldo, thank you very much for the insight. Full thermal gear will be packed and may even pack extra for the brass monkeys :-).

Sorry to pose you with another question only are you aware of any flight retsictions on Schiphol. My biggest fear now is that flights may be cancelled due to the cold weather.

Canalsfrozen over, now that will be a site for sore eyes.

Schiphol is operating pretty normally at present. There is however snow forecast for Sunday.

Hmm...accuweather.com show slightly warmer for the weekend.

If the winter is gone by the first weekend of March, I'll be fine.

This is what I find to be one of the most reliable of the local sites:

It is in Dutch but the graphics are clear. The 5 day forecast, which is about half way down the page, still shows brass monkeys this weekend.

I just saw a bloke skate down my canal. Never seen that before. Brrr...

I like weer.nl/wereldweer/…amsterdam.html

Says it will be a balmy 6C by Monday so if you want to see ice then you had better get your skates on.

Schiphol will be fine unless they have more snow which is not forecast at all.

Sounds like im missing out on all the fun at the moment. Ok so the general concensus is it is freezing and will stay freezing up to the 14th when im due to fly back to London. Ill ensure my thermals are packed and my ice skates are in the case.

I spose a snowball fight if indeed it does snow on Sunday and Monday could add the excitement of the city! :-)
