The rainy weather will move away from the east of the country on Thursday afternoon, leaving generally dry weather behind it, the Royal Meteorological Institute, IRM, said on Thursday around midday.
A few showers coming in from the North Sea could, however, drift towards areas on the Dutch border. Temperatures will range between 10° and 11° in the Ardennes and 15° to 16° in the plains. The wind, blowing in from the northwest, will be moderate to quite high, with gusts of up to 60 km/hr. along the coast.
The weather will remain dry on Thursday evening, but this will be followed by fresh night-time showers in the north of the country. Temperatures will range from 5° to 13°, with a moderate wind from west to northwest. The wind will remain high at sea.
On Friday, the weather will oscillate between showers and clear skies. The heaviest, most frequent downpours will be in the northeast. On the other hand, drier, sunnier weather is expected along the border with France.
Dry weather will return throughout the country on Friday evening. Temperatures will range between 9° in Hautes Fagnes and 15° in La Côte. The wind will be moderate inland, remaining quite high at sea.
Saturday will begin with dry weather and the east will enjoy some clear skies. The weather will be increasingly cloudy with light showers in the afternoon. These will intensify, becoming downpours that may affect all regions by Saturday evening, through to Sunday morning.
Temperatures from 9° to 15° are expected throughout the weekend.
