Belgium Geography, Climate, and Weather


Belgium is located at the Western Europe, bordering the North Sea, between France 620 km, Germany 167 km, Luxembourg 148 km, and Netherlands 450 km. Total area includes 1,385 km.

The climate near the sea is humid and mild. Farther inland, away from the moderating maritime influences, a marked increase in the range of temperature occurs.
In the Ardennes region hot summers alternate with cold winters. Heavy rains are confined almost exclusively to the highlands. Fog and drizzle are common, and April and November are particularly rainy months.
In Brussels, located at the center of the nation, the average temperatures range from -1 to 4 C (30 to 40 F) in January and 12 to 23 C (54 to 73 F) in July. In Oostende, on the coast, the average range is 1 to 5 C (33 to 41 F) in January and 13 to 20 C (56 to 67 F) in July.

Rainfall in Brussels is uniformly spread throughout the year, with a yearly average of about 860 mm (about 34 in); annual precipitation in Oostende averages about 600 mm (about 24 in).
