With a mild and damp climate, Amsterdam sees lots of rain throughout the year, particularly in the winter months from October or November to February. Needless to say, expats should invest in a good umbrella and keep it in hand.
The weather in Amsterdam can be highly unpredictable, with sudden drops in temperature even in summer. Summers are mild and warm with temperatures averaging between 68°F (20°C) and 71°F (22°C), while winters can be bitterly cold and frosty, with temperatures dropping to freezing.
