Belgium’s climate is classed as temperate maritime as it is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea, with cool damp summers and moderately cold wet winters. Due to the small size of the country there is very little variation in climate from region to region. Rainfall is evenly distributed throughout the year with dryer spells occurring in April to September.
The winter months often bring low-pressure systems and gales similar to those experienced in the UK. Occasionally Easterly winds can bring more continental weather with warm and dry spells in occurring in the summer months. Winter temperatures can reach quite a bit below zero.
Belgium is mostly a flat country but in the eastern regions it is quite hilly which causes cooler temperatures and a wetter climate. In the winter these areas can receive heavy snowfall.
