Meteorological spring begins Thursday 1 March. According to the Meteovista platform, the season begins in conjunction with the lowest felt temperatures of the current period of freezing. “Thursday morning, the felt temperature will be around minus 13 degrees centigrade in the West and minus 15 degrees in the center of the country,” indicates Meterovista. “In Ardennes, it will even be minus 20 degrees.”
The Royal Institute of Meteorology had already warned that Thursday would be particularly cold with a strong, dry east to south-east wind. It will be cloudy, but the weather should remain dry, with the exception of a few snow flurries. There will be freezing temperatures in the morning, but the mercury will rise progressively to minus 1 and plus 2 degrees during the day.
