Coldest night of the year recorded, measured by severe frost

Freezing days (Nuno Curado - Wild Eindhoven)

Last night was the coldest night of the year. Temperatures dropped to well below zero in Brabant on Monday night. Woensdrecht was coldest with -8.7 degrees. In other parts of Brabant, temperatures sank to below -7.

Only Twente and Groningen were colder with -9.4 and -8.8.

On the ground it became a lot colder in Brabant. In Gilze-Rijen, at a height of 10 centimetres, it was -11.7, closely followed by Eindhoven with -11.5. If the temperature drops below -10 degrees, metereologists speak of severe frost.

This Tuesday the temperature is slowly creeping towards freezing point, but it continues to feel like frost, predicts Weerplaza .

A few more cold nights will follow, but at the weekend the temperature will be above 0 again. Next week night frost will be a thing of the past.
