very mild temperature
The end of the year is also marked by very high temperatures. ,We will feel them here especially after the passage of the warm front tomorrow. These are very mild temperatures that come from Spain from the tropical south wind of the Atlantic.“, explains RTL weather presenter Stephan van Bellingen.
Is this a record? ,On 28 December 1955, Uccle was raised by 13.3 degrees. We’re forecasting 11 degrees this afternoon so we may be a little off this record but it’s still an incredible temperature. Seasonal temperatures should normally not exceed 6 degrees. Minima are also exceptionally soft. Normally, we rotate about 1.2 or 2 degrees. However, tomorrow night, we expect 9 (Hautes Fagnes) to 13 degree (Uccle) minimums tomorrow night.“, the weather presenter continues.
Friday seems like the day we might have a record. We have announced a forecast between 10, 14 or 15 degrees for this December 31st. The last temperature record was set in 2017. It was 13.8 degrees.
