    Belgium awoke wrapped in fog this morning, with low clouds and fog banks reported across the country, despite a pleasant start to the week. The fog will reduce visibility to less than 500 meters in many parts of the country, dropping to 200 meters in some areas, according to the Royal Meteorological Institute (MRI), who urged for caution on the roads. The fog alert is in effect until four pm this afternoon.

    The weather is also proving problematic in other parts of Europe, with several airports reporting low visibility. London City airport has already announced that some flights have been cancelled as a result.

    Maximum temperatures will vary between 8 and 13 degrees. By the weekend, the mild and sunny weather is expected to return with a maximum temperature between 9 and 14 degrees.
