Today marks the end of the scorching heat. During the afternoon, clouds will appear as thunderstorms will sweep across the country from southwest to northeast.
The VRT's weather presenter Sabine Hagedoren (photo) says that the orange alert is on - the number 3 on a scale of 4 possible weather alerts - as from 2 p.m. until tonight.
People should take their precautions as thunderstorms will sweep in, sometimes with heavy rain or even hail and strong winds that could cause damage. Local floods are also possible.
