Up to 10cm of snow in border area by morning: ‘it can get slippery all around’ (weather)

Hasselt

There is winter again. On Wednesday morning we had to scrape the ice off the car windows for the first time this year. There’s a good chance your driveway will be covered in snow today, too.

On Wednesday morning, it was freezing to four degrees in Limburg. This was the first frost since mid-December. It was only frozen four times even later in the year. In 2007 we had to wait until January 22nd. The record dates back to 1976, with the first freezing cold on January 24th.

10 cm?

Winter has returned with a cold. On Wednesday evening, last night’s rains moved to the country from the northwest. The showers are part of a ‘polar depression’, which is a depression that forms over the Norwegian Sea in icy cold air, over relatively warm sea water and that causes a lot of precipitation. If this precipitation is still heavy enough over our area, it will snow. He will be able to lie on the cool roof now.

“According to the latest calculations, showers will move across the country starting at 6 a.m. on Thursday. The border region with the Netherlands has the best chance of snow. In Lommel, Hammont, Kenroy district, it could fall from 5 to 10 centimeters,” Robin predicts. And he gets married. “The snow area will not reach the south of the province until 9 am. It is estimated that the chances of snow will be less there.”

Work from home

“It can get slippery all around, Thursday morning. It might be a good idea to work from home on Thursday as a precaution. After the shower is over it will get drier and it will thaw a bit, but that can quickly lead to freezing rain. Watch out for traffic throughout Today. Especially since some weather models are forecasting rain again in the late afternoon. That hasn’t been confirmed yet.”
