Heat: are we going to break temperature records this Friday and Saturday?

The sun will continue to shine on Thursday afternoon despite the presence of a few high sails at times. The maxima will be between 21 degrees in Hautes Fagnes, 26 degrees in the center and 28 degrees in Gaume under a light to moderate north to northeast wind, indicates the IRM in its midday forecast.

Thursday evening and the following night, the sky will often be starry with a few more cloudy periods over the west and north of the country. The minima will be close to 8 degrees in the Hautes Fagnes and between 13 and 16 degrees on the plain under a light to moderate wind on the coast in the south-east sector. Friday, the weather will be sunny again with high altitude sails which will however be more discreet in the afternoon. The maxima will be between 26 degrees in the Hautes Fagnes and 29 to 31 degrees in the plain. The wind, initially weak from the southeast, will become moderate as it moves to the southwest. On the coast, we expect a sea breeze blowing from west to south-west. “The daily record for Uccle dates from 2002 and is 31.3 degrees”, says our meteorologist David Dehenauw. “But on Saturday, temperatures are expected to exceed 31.5 degrees so the record will normally be largely beaten. It is also a record that dates from 2002”, he adds.

The night from Friday to Saturday promises to be hot with values ​​between 13 degrees in the Hautes Fagnes and 18 to 20 degrees in most other regions. The wind will be weak to sometimes moderate from south to southwest.

On Saturday, the weather will be sunny with, in the afternoon, the possibility of a few high cloudy periods over the northwestern half of the country. This day will be the culmination of this episode of high heat with scorching temperatures. The maxima will indeed be between 30 and 35 degrees or even very locally a little more inland, under a weak to moderate southerly wind, returning to the southeast in the evening. On the coast, a moderate north to northeast wind will pick up and prevent temperatures from crossing the 26 degree mark.
