  • The air quality monitoring networks in Belgium are used for the assessment of air quality under the air quality directives (2008/50/EC & 2004/107/EC).

  • Weather Model 'Alaro' A numerical forecast model is a computer program that simulates the evolution of the atmosphere. Available parameters : Temperature, Max. temperature, Min. temperature, Dewpoint temperature, Wet-bulb potential temperature, Cloud cover (low, medium, high, tot.), U and V wind component, U, V and vertical velocity, Stationary boundary layer (SBL) Gust, Total precipitation, Large scale rain, Convective rain, Large scale snow, Convective snow, Relative Humidity, Specific humidity, Geopotential, Mean sea level pressure, Orography, freezing level / 0°C isotherm, Convective available potential energy (CAPE)

  • RMI operates a network of 17 automatic weather stations in Belgium. These weather stations report meteorological paramaters such as air pressure, temperature, relative humidity, precipitation (quantity,duration), wind (speed, gust, direction), sunshine duration, shortwave solar radiation and infrared radiation every 10 minutes.

  • RMI operates a network of 17 automatic weather stations in Belgium. These weather stations report meteorological paramaters such as air pressure, temperature, relative humidity, precipitation (quantity, duration), wind (speed, gust, direction), sunshine duration, shortwave solar radiation and infrared radiation every 10 minutes. Daily AWS data are computed from the 10-min observations.

  • RMI operates a network of 17 automatic weather stations in Belgium. These weather stations report meteorological paramaters such as air pressure, temperature, relative humidity, precipitation (quantity, duration), wind (speed, gust, direction), sunshine duration, shortwave solar radiation and infrared radiation every 10 minutes. Hourly AWS data are computed from the 10-min observations.

  • The composite is produced every 5 minutes using the reflectivit data from the Wideumont and Jabbeke weather radars. This product is not publically available yet.

  • Hail products are derived from the observed vertical profiles of radar reflectivity and the NWP vertical profiles of temperature. Three types of products are generated. poh : probability of hail of any size (larger than 0.5 cm diameter)expressed in %. posh : probability of severe hail(larger than 2cm)expressed in %. mesh : maximum expected size of hailexpressed in mm of hailstone diameter. All products are generated every 5 minutes. This product is not publically available yet.

  • The climatological network contains about 200 stations spread over the whole country. It consists of voluntary observers recruited by the RMI, professional observers of Skeyes (civil aviation) or the Air Force (military aviation) and civil servants of the state, communities or private companies. The observers measure the amount of rain fallen in the last 24 hours in the pluviometer of the RMI every morning at 8 o‘clock. In more than half of the stations the extreme air temperatures are also recorded by reading the maximum and minimum temperature in a standardized weather shelter. The observers send their observations either on a  daily or on a monthly basis to RMI. This product is not publicly available yet.

  • Daily forecasts for each belgian commune, from current day up to the next 7 days. This product is not publically available.

  • Hourly forecasts for each belgian commune, from current hour up to the next 5 days. This product is not publically available.
