During the weekend, a rain gauge (MeteoRain from Barani Design) has been added to the existing MeteoHelix weather station at Meix-devant-Virton in the far south of the belgian province of Luxembourg.

April 23-24, 2021

MeteoWind at Ster/Stavelot

 

At Ster/Stavelot (province of Liège) equipment has been installed (MeteoWind from Barani Design) to measure windspeed and also winddirection.

The station is located at an elevation of 511 meters above sea level and is currently the second highest place where winddata is captured, after the Baraque de Fraiture.

 

Also at Kluizen/Evergem, Ghent region - East-Flanders, a windstation popped up with similar equipment used at Stavelot. The pole has a height of exactly 10 meters, conforming WMO-guidelines. 

There are no obstacles in the vicinity of the weather station which guarantees perfect winddata.

Today we can add two new weather stations to our list:

  • The first is set up in KAULILLE (Bocholt) in the north of the province of Limburg. It is located about 3 km from Kleine Brogel Air Force Base and therefore good for lower temperatures during winter and high values during beautiful summer days. Thanks to Dominiek Nouwen for providing this installation location.
     
  • The second station is located in VLIERMAAL, part of Kortessem in the region of Hasselt-Tongeren-St-Truiden on the wine estate “SCHORPION Méthode Traditionelle”.
    The 2-hectare vineyard is of course worth a visit to get acquainted with quality sparkling wines! Thanks to the Schorpion brothers for this location.

February 9th, 2021

The website of Meteo Vlaanderen is officially launched. For a lot of places the weather can now be monitored in real time. The weather stations are all identical and are set up in open locations as it should be. The exceptions to this are clearly indicated.

The observations come from the Belgische Meteo Club Belge (BMCB). Measurements are carried out with (semi) professional equipment that is also used by the RMI in their climatic network.

Contrary to what the domain name suggests, we show you the observations over the entire territory of our country and the name “Meteo Belgium” is more appropriate.

The observations are updated every 10 minutes. For more details, averages and totals you can click further on a station. The whole will be expanded even more in the near future.

Stations are currently located in Jabbeke, Beernem, Avelgem, Merendree, Evergem, Silly, Courcelles, Herhet, Gesves, Chiny, Liège, Léglise, Baraque de Fraiture, Recht, Braunlauf, Amel and Büllingen. Many more stations are planned!

The data of all these stations is public and may also be copied. We only ask for a link and mention to the source of all data and that is BMCB… It does not take up much space!
