The map gives an overview of all the heavy snowfall warnings for the Netherlands. On the graphic you can see at which locations respectively in which areas of the Netherlands heavy snowfalls and thereby large amounts of fresh snow and snow dangers are to be reckoned with. This may entail considerable traffic obstructions and snow damage in the Netherlands.

We distinguish between weather watches and weather warnings. Heavy snowfall watches for the Netherlands are issued if heavy snowfalls are probable but there are uncertainties about duration, intensity and/or the course of them. Heavy snowfall warnings for the Netherlands, in turn, are divided into three levels (orange, red, violet) that comply whith the expected depth of fresh snow. The detailed and reliable forecasts of such heavy snowfall events are very important especially for the winter road maintenance, the traffic and the accident service of the Netherlands. Professional and experienced meteorologists at the Severe Weather Centre continually adjust the heavy snow forecasts for the Netherlands manually and make them cutting-edge 24 hours a day.
