The weather in Belgium is fairly grey throughout the year. The country's climate is temperate, and not unpleasant, but precipitation is a constant through various seasons. Rain becomes a normal part of life, but when mixed with the stark coldness of winter, can prove challenging for newly arrived expats.

Maritime influences from the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean make for cooler summers and moderate winters. Temperatures range from 72°F (22°C) during warmer months to 39°F (4°C) during colder months. The small size of the country means that weather in Belgium remains relatively uniform, with only a slight variation in the region of the Ardennes. The high elevation in this area brings colder temperatures and more snowfall.

Expats living in Belgium will quickly learn to bring along something waterproof, even if sunshine and blue skies start the day.
