Code yellow: RMI warns of thunderstorms that can be very strong locally

It will be warm in the summer on Monday, but towards the evening the weather will change and the RMI expects thunderstorms that can be very fierce locally. The meteorological institute therefore issues code yellow. Also in the province of Antwerp, vigilance for thunderstorms applies from 6 pm tonight.

Monday starts out quite sunny, but in the west the clouds increase quickly and there may be a few showers. In the late afternoon, the chance of locally fierce showers increases, with thunderstorms and gusts of wind. There is also a chance of thunderstorms in Antwerp from 6 p.m. The mercury climbs to 25 degrees at the sea and in High Belgium and to 31 degrees elsewhere. This is reported by the RMI.

In the course of the evening and night, showers will pass over our country. These can be accompanied by thunderstorms, a lot of precipitation in a short time and gusts of wind. The mercury drops to minimums between 14 and 17 degrees.
