LThe Royal Meteorological Institute announces rather hot and unstable weather for the next few days. Tonight, a stormy rain will affect the east, north and part of the center of the country. In the far west, a few isolated showers will be possible in the early evening, then the weather will generally become dry under a partly cloudy sky. The minima will be between 15 and 19 degrees, under a generally weak wind of variable direction.
Tomorrow, after a short lull in the early morning, the weather will become very unstable with regular showers and thunderstorms; these will sometimes be intense with a local risk of hail and/or gusts of wind. It will however be a little less hot with maximums of 20 degrees on the heights of the Ardennes to 25 degrees in the Campine. The wind will be weak to moderate from south to southwest.
Saturday morning, the eastern half of the country will still benefit from large clearings. Over the west, the sky will be cloudy with occasional light precipitation. During the day, the clouds will reach the center of the country. In the afternoon, a few showers, possibly stormy, will affect the west and then also the center. In the east, the weather will probably remain generally dry under a sky divided between clouds and sunny spells. The maxima will be between 20 degrees west and 24 or 25 degrees east, with a light to moderate southerly wind.
During the night from Saturday to Sunday, the risk of a few (thundery) showers will concern the whole country. These showers will leave our country on Sunday morning, and will head towards the Netherlands. During the day, a new rain wave will pass near our regions; it should mainly impact the south-east of the territory where the sky will then be very cloudy with rain or showers. In the west, and perhaps also in the center of the country, the weather will remain dry with more sunny spells. The maximum will be between 17 degrees in the Ardennes and 22 or 23 degrees in the Campine. The wind will be light to moderate from the southwest.
