Saturday’s weather will be dry and sunny with occasional high-altitude cloud veils, Belgium's Royal Meteorological Institute (IRM) forecasts.

The weather will be remarkably mild for the season, with maximum temperatures of 20 to 23°C in the Ardennes and about 23 or 24°C elsewhere. In Brussels it could reach 25°C. Moderate to fairly strong winds will blow from the south, with gusts around 50 km/h.; by late afternoon, it will shift to the southwest in the extreme west of the country.

Cloud cover will increase from the west overnight, bringing an elevated risk of rainfall. Minimum temperatures will fluctuate between 10 and 13°C in the south of the Sambre-et-Meuse region and between 12 and 14°C over the rest of the country, with a predominantly south to south-western wind.

Sunday will be significantly more cloudy with light showers through the morning. But conditions will generally be dry, with occasional sunshine. Rainfall will resume in the central and eastern regions in the late afternoon and evening.
