Storm warnings for Belgium

Belgium - Warnings for gales and storms

The map gives an overview of all the gale and storm warnings for Belgium. On the graphic you can see at which locations respectively in which areas of Belgium gale or storm has to be reckoned with.

We distinguish between weather watches and weather warnings. A storm watch for Belgium is issued if a gale / storm in Belgium is probable but there are uncertainties about duration, intensity and/or the course of it. Gale / storm warnings are released in three levels (orange, red, violet) that comply with the intensity of the expected storm gusts. The detailed and reliable forecasts of such gale or storm events are very important especially for the building industry, the agriculture, the forestry, insurances and event organisers of Belgium. Professional and experienced meteorologists of the Severe Weather Centre continually adjust the forecasts manually and make them cutting-edge 24 hours a day.
