European Weather: The Netherlands swelters as temperatures hit record levels

The temperature tipped 37.3 degrees in Maastricht on Thursday, making it the warmest July day ever recorded in the Netherlands, broadcaster Nos said. Last night was also the warmest evening since formal records began in 1901. In Arcen, in Limburg, the temperature did not dip below 24.1 degrees. In coastal regions, however, a sea breeze means the temperature is being kept below 28 degrees. In addition, there may be some localised thunderstorms on Thursday evening, weather forecasters say. The heatwave has led Dutch railway company NS to reduce services on some routes to head off the risk of the rails buckling. A number of events, such as fun runs and shows involving animals, have also been cancelled or brought forward this weekend because of the heat.
