The day will be cloudy most of the time, with some light snowfall possible in certain places.

During the night from Friday to Saturday, the weather will generally remain dry with alternating clear skies and clouds. In the Ardennes, there will be a risk of freezing fog.

The night will be cold with minimum temperatures of -1 at the coast, around -3 in the centre and -5 to -10 degrees in the highest parts of Belgium.

The maximum temperatures will range from -5 in the High Fens (Hautes Fagnes) to 0 degrees at the coast.

During the night, the snow will gradually turn into melting snow or even rain, with the weather becoming drier afterwards, while it will continue to snow in the eastern part of the country.

On Sunday, in the west and centre of the country, the sky may clear up and the weather will gradually become generally dry. From the north-east to the south-east, the cloud cover will most often be abundant with continued snow in the Ardennes and rain elsewhere.

Maximum temperatures will range from 0 degrees in the Ardennes to 6 degrees at the coast.
