The weather this weekend may cause envious glances in some regions of our country. It will finally rain in many places, but not everywhere. “One well will be filled up a bit again, but elsewhere it will remain bone dry,” says weatherman Frank Deboosere.

Rarely have we been so looking forward to a heavy rain shower. According to the statistics of the RMI, it has been since August 18 that it has dripped again and nature is hungry for water. A lot of water.
Friday evening and Saturday it’s finally time. But not everywhere, warns weatherman Frank Deboosere. “In some places it will rain and there is even a chance of thunderstorms. But in many other places it will remain with threatening clouds and not a drop of rain will fall. It’s a bit upside down. Other years we hope for good weather, now we want nothing more than for it to rain.”
A heavy shower is certainly welcome, but what will fall locally on Saturday and possibly Monday, will certainly not be enough for what nature needs, notes David Dehenauw.
The RMI announced today that this summer was the driest since 1991. In total, only 110.6 mm of precipitation fell in Uccle. The previous record only dates back to 2018. Then there was 134.7 mm of precipitation.
It will also be a little less warm on Saturday, although it will still be around 24 degrees. But the heat is certainly not gone. According to Frank Deboosere, we will easily go over 25 degrees again on Sunday and Monday.
The chance of more changeable weather will only increase in the second half of next week.
