Thanks to hotel-restaurant-café SCHRÖDER, a new weather station was added in the eastern part of the country.

The weather station is located less than 200 meters from the German border in the hamlet of Losheimergraben (Büllingen, East Cantons). The weather station consists of a MeteoHelix and rain gauge set up in the middle of a 90 x 350 meter meadow. With an altitude of 675 meters, it is currently the second highest weather station in our network after Botrange (690m) and just slightly higher than our weather station on the Mont-Rigi (672m).

Besides the weather station, a webcam and snowcam were installed at the hotel. You can find pictures of it on this page.

Installation Team B is heading to Mont-Rigi today to also set up a BMCB station 250 meters away from the RMI's synoptic weather station so that every person visiting our website will get a weather update every 10 minutes. The club's weather station includes both a MeteoHelix, pluviometer and also a windmeter!

In the first half of next month, a webcam and snowcam will also be placed here, giving you a full picture of the weather, including snow levels!

On top of the 10-meter high pole is the windmeter at official measurement height. The MeteoHelix and rain gauge are located to the left of the trees/bushes.

October 4th, 2022

Weather stations were placed at 3 locations today, each with a MeteoHelix and accompanying rain gauge.

The locations were in the province of Antwerp: Balen (thanks to sponsor Gunter Willekens and the local department of Natuurpunt), the other two are in the province of Limburg: on wine estate Thilesna in Dilsen-Stokkem (thanks Johan Jacobs) and also in Zutendaal a weather station appeared along the Blotevoetenpad in Lieteberg. The latter weather station will soon also be joined by a windmeter on the 18-meter-high observation tower.

The weather station in Dilsen-Stokkem is located along part of the "old Meuse"; so influence from the large pond is quite possible.
The weather station in Zutendaal is obviously a bit more sheltered in this wooded area, locally a good measurement for visitors.
The view from the observation tower in Lieteberg where the windmeter is also being installed... A webcam is also among the possibilities!

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!
