Big cities like Amsterdam are generally warmer than their surrounding rural areas. The impact of the numerous urban factors on its temperature is called the “Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect”. It is clear that this “Urban Heat Island” effect for Amsterdam will change, because the climate changes and as a result of further urban development. There are projections of this climate change and urban development in 2040 and they indicate that the “UHI effect” in Amsterdam may strongly increase. 

In other words, Amsterdam will be extra warm. Something we have to take into account.
