Warmest winter on record 3/1/2007
AMSTERDAM – The winter of 2006-2007 was the warmest weather since measurements began in 1706. A spokesperson for the KNMI meteorological institute said this on Wednesday.

The average temperature this winter was 6.5 degrees Celsius. The average temperature for the winter months is usually 3.3 degrees.

The KNMI recorded frost on 15 days, compared to the winter average of 38 days.

The average temperature in the Netherlands this year was comparable to southern France.

The year as a whole (2006) was also the warmest on record. July and September 2006, January 2007 and the autumn of 2006 were the warmest in three centuries.

Today is the last official day of winter for meteorologists. The average winter temperatures for the northern hemisphere are based on the months December, January and February. The last day of winter on the astronomical calendar is 21 March.

The KNMI says that the warm southwesterly wind was responsible for the persistently warm weather. Increased cloudiness and global warming also contributed to the record highs.

The warm weather is expected to continue on into the spring.
