Up until now the highest temperature ever recorded at the Ukkel Weather Centre in Brussels was 36.6°C on 27 June 1947. However, if the forecasts are correct this record will be broken on Thursday.
Frank Deboosere (photo below) told VRT News that “Tomorrow (Tuesday) temperatures will reach 28°C at the coast and 33°C in inland areas. From Wednesday it will become really tropical with temperatures reaching 36°C. At night things won’t really cool down with temperatures remaining above 20°C”.
"Thursday could well be the warmest day ever in our country. We forecast temperatures of 37°C and more”.
