Banks and post offices closed on Thursday and Friday
Banks and post offices around Belgium will be closed not just on Thursday's Ascension public holiday - but also on the Friday.
Bpost will deliver only newspapers and parcels on Friday - no regular letters. Post offices and banks will reopen on Saturday, according to their normal opening hours.
With Ascension falling on a Thursday, many workers choose to take the Friday off to make a long weekend.
Thursday will be overcast with frequent light rain and moderate winds, according to the Royal Meteorological Institute. Friday will remain cloudy, but will be generally dry.
The weather is due to improve on Saturday, with sun and highs of 23°C - going up to 25°C on Sunday.
