The long-awaited summer weather is expected to arrive this weekend and stretch into the first half of next week, according to Belgian weather experts.

The late arrival of sunny and warm weather is due to an area of high-pressure near Scotland which will allow temperatures to slowly rise from today. Most of us can expect a dry Friday with maximum temperatures between 18 and 23°C.

In the south of the country, the day starts brightly with it becoming very sunny later, while in the north it will still be cloudy at first before gradually becoming clear, allowing the sun to shine down on the Belgian coast and pushing the temperature up to around 20°C.

Saturday will be quite sunny, with a few clouds gathering in the west during the afternoon. Temperatures are expected to remain stable, around 21 and 23°C depending on where you are in the country.

The beginning of next week will bring sunny and warm weather with temperatures increasing to around 25 to 26°C, with some forecasts suggesting temperatures in the low 30°C by the middle of the week.
