    The first weekend of May will bring friskier temperatures back to Belgium, with some regions looking at the possibility of snow on Saturday.

    The Royal Meteorological Institute forecasts an overall dry Friday, although it notes some rain could be expected, and estimates temperatures will remain below the 13°C mark.

    As polar winds transit through the country, a cold front is expected on Saturday, which means northern regions could see some snow or slush.

    Elsewhere, temperatures will be lower than average for the season, and the skies will be intermittently clear and cloudy.

    Thunderclaps, hail and showers also forecast, and strong winds could reach speeds of up to 65 km/h.
