We are currently experiencing the warmest Boxing day since 1901, David Dehenauw from the Royal Institute of Meteorology indicated on Saturday morning. Just before midday, temperatures of 13.4°C were recorded in Uccle, which just passed the previous record set in 1974.
Temperatures are expected to continue to climb during the day pushing the record even further.
Measurements by the Royal Institute of Meteorology began in 1901.
