Walking weather rating explained

The walking weather rating is an objective evaluation of weather conditions for walking. The calculation takes into account weather conditions that are especially relevant for walkers.

The walking weather rating is calculated in Dutch summer time between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. (6-18.00 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)). In winter this period starts and ends an hour earlier.

The ideal rating score is 10. Points are deducted when the weather negatively influences walking conditions. The minimum score is 1. The following weather conditions are taken into account when calculating the walking weather rating:

  • Precipitation
  • Wind strength
  • Sunshine hours
  • Mist and fog
  • Temperature
  • Risk of thunderstorms

The temperature and risk of thunderstorms have both been given added value in the calculation for the walking weather rating. The wind strength and amount of sunshine play a lesser role.
