As more snow is expected to fall in Belgium from Wednesday night, Belgium’s Royal Meteorological Institute (RMI) has issued a warning against slippery conditions on the country’s roads.

After it snowed in Belgium on Tuesday night, more snow is expected to fall in the coming days. “Wednesday night, temperatures will probably drop below zero,” said VRT weather reporter Frank Deboosere. “There’s a chance of ice spots too. Additionally, new showers are on the way, which could fall like snow,” he added.

More showers were expected on Wednesday afternoon and evening mostly in Wallonia, in the provinces of Liège, Namur and Luxembourg, according to the RMI. On the Ardennes Heights, they will take the form of melting snow, resulting in a snow cover of up to five centimetres.

Snow build-ups will be irregular, depending on the trajectory of the showers, IRM noted, adding that ice sheets could be formed during the night.

In Wallonia, the Public Service Department, SPW, has activated the pre-alert traffic phase so as to keep the roads in the best possible conditions.

Showers of sleet or sometimes snow will continue to fall until Thursday.
