The last days of 2005 were wintry with snow and freezing temperatures. From December 26th on many snow showers passed the country, mainly in coastal areas. Locally more than 10 cm of snow cover was measured. On December 30 an active front caused heavy snow in many places of the country. Combined with strong southeast winds blizzard like conditions occured and the Dutch Met. Office issued a weather alert. Later on the day snow went over in sleet and freezing rain, but not many accidents occured. I stayed at my parents place where snow arrived late in the evening and overnight. I shot several photos of which some can be seen in my winter 2005 collection. Towards New Year thaw conquered the country.
December 2005 had an about normal average temperature. It was a sunny month with below average precipitation. The year 2005 as a whole got ranked 6th of the warmest years ever recorded in the Netherlands. The amount of precipitation was near normal, but the amount of sunshine was amongst the highest ever recorded in our country!
2006 started of with grey skies and above freezing temperatures, but today skies are clearing. It will likely get colder again during the next few days.
