2006 warmest year in Netherlands in 300 years
Tue Dec 12 2006 10:15:19 ET
This year is on track to be the warmest in the Netherlands since temperatures were first measured in 1706, the Dutch meteorological institute KNMI said on Tuesday, linking the record with global warming.
REUTERS reports: The average temperature in 2006 is likely to exceed 11 degrees Celsius in the Netherlands, beating a previous record of 10.9 degrees in 2000, Rob van Dorland of the KNMI atmospheric research department told Reuters in an interview.
"So far December is warmer than normal unless we get a very cold spell in the last two weeks of the month. According to our predictions, we will have average temperatures of above 11 degrees for the year," van Dorland said.
Dutch temperature records are among the oldest in the world. Methodical thermometer-based records began on a more global basis around 1850.
