To some people it seems like it has been doing nothing but raining for months. A feeling that is based on something. For the sixth month in a row, more precipitation has fallen than what we can expect on average. The last time that happened was from January to June 2016.

In Uccle a total fell 79.2 millimeters of precipitation, normally this is 59.3 millimeters. That amount fell 18 out of 31 days, normally this is in 15.7 days. On March 11, the most precipitation fell in Uccle with 25 millimeters. The largest total in one day in our country fell on March 12 in Mont-Rigi (Weismes): 33.0 millimeters.

Despite the feeling that March was mostly rain, monthly precipitation totals did hover around normal. The least precipitation fell in Belgian Lorraine (about 80 percent of the normal amount), while the most precipitation fell in Flanders (about 140 percent).

There were also in March 6 thunderstorm days, normally there are 4.4. And it stood out 2 days of precipitation that consisted entirely or partly of snowon March 23 and 24, in the High Fens.
