Chance of a natural fire

What can you do to prevent a natural fire?  

Because it has not rained for a long time on Texel, the chance of a natural fire increases. In dry periods, a natural fire can develop quickly and unpredictably. Because of the persistent drought, heat and wind, the municipality of Texel is paying extra attention to the increased chance of wildfires. 
This notification comes from the Municipality Texel (July 2018). 

The municipality of Texel extends the smoking ban in forest, dune and heathlands on Texel. From 3 July 2018 a smoking ban applies here because of drought, heat and wind. The smoking ban is extended by a month, until 3 September, in view of the continuing dry period.

In addition to the smoking ban, there is still a firing ban in the nature reserves. This means that no open fire can be made in nature areas. The same applies to cooking in nature on charcoal or briquettes. Everyone can contribute to prevent fire from occurring. Be very cautious in making fire. Campers or landlords have been asked by the municipality to introduce a ban on their own grounds for making fire and the use of barbecues.
The above message is from the Municipality of Texel (2 August 2018)

Are you a sun worshipper and are you wondering where in the Netherlands the sun shines the most? We advice you to spend your holiday on Texel!

The most sunshine on Texel

On the Waddenislands, the sun shines the most in our country. Texel has on average 2046 sun hours per year, the east part of the country only has 1500 sun hours. The main difference is during spring and early summer.

Why does the sun shine the most over Texel?

Because there are mainly westerly winds, the clouds are easily chased from the relatively narrow coast line . The statistics say that May is the sunniest month in the Netherlands.

Sunniest place of the Netherlands

The largest chance you have on sun shine is at the ferry between Den Helder and Texel. Statistics from the KNMI show that the south point of Texel and the north point of North- Holland have the most sun hours. The relatively cold seawater makes that , especially in spring, less clouds develop , while in the inland cumulus clouds appear.
