A maritime climate

Bennekom has a maritime climate and this has to do with the location and influence of the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The sea absorbs the solar radiation and the moving water conducts the heat downwards. The sea can absorb the heat better than the land. If the sea takes in more than it gives off, the temperature difference between summer and winter becomes less and less. You will still have to deal with the four seasons, but there will be no big difference in temperature.
