Climate

The Netherlands has a temperate maritime climate influenced by the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean. Since the country is small there is little variation in climate from region to region, although the marine influences are less inland. Average temperature ranges are from -1 to 4°C (30 to 39°F) in January to 13 to 22°C (55 to 72°F) in July.

Administrative division

The Netherlands is divided into twelve administrative regions, called provinces. All provinces are divided into municipalities (gemeenten), 430 in total.
3 BES islands, also known as the Caribbean Netherlands, have the status of openbare lichamen (public bodies) and are generally referred to as special municipalities. They are not part of a province.
