The weather: the day starts dry and at first locally a bit foggy. The sun shines regularly in most places this morning. It will gradually become cloudy and rain will follow in the evening. It will be 9 to 11 degrees.

What did you miss?
In the run-up to tonight’s corona press conference, it has already become clear that the outgoing cabinet will announce a partial lockdown this evening that will last three weeks. Sources reported this to the NOS last night. One of the measures is that the catering industry and non-essential shops must close at 7 p.m.
The advice also applies to invite a maximum of four visitors at home and to really work from home as much as possible. The measures will take effect tomorrow at 7 p.m.
Other news from the night:
And then this:
The four astronauts who left on a SpaceX rocket to the International Space Station on Wednesday arrived safely. The new crew members, three Americans and a German, will stay in space for about six months.
Their four predecessors landed on Earth in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday, after six months in the ISS. The four astronauts were wearing diapers because the toilet in their capsule had failed.
