Heavy snow expected on Wednesday, reaching 20 cm in Wallonia

Heavy snow will fall in large parts of Belgium on Wednesday. The southeast in particular could see 20 cm or more of snow, while the centre and northeast could see 10 cm or more.

On Wednesday, a series of disturbances from France will collide with the cold air mass over Belgium, causing a snow zone to move into Belgium from the French border.

Most of the snow is not expected to fall until the afternoon, particularly in Brussels and Flanders. The snow zone is expected to leave Belgium on Thursday morning.

While the heaviest snow is expected in the southeast, the Royal Meteorological Institute says "all regions will face problems" and recommends limiting travel on Wednesday.

Snow will be heavy south of the Sambre and Meuse rivers. From Hainaut to the Kempen, there will be regular snowfall. From the Scheldt to the coast, snowfall will be more limited, but a blanket of snow may form. On the coast, melting snow may fall occasionally.
