The climate of Flemish Coast (Belgium)
The Flemish coast or the Belgian coast is a 67 kilometer long
coastline along the North Sea in the western part of Belgium.
Traditionally this area is one of the most popular tourist
destinations in Flanders and Belgium. During warm summer months there
is a lot of traffic congestion here. The Flemish coast has a moderate
sea climate with mild winters and reasonably warm summers. Rain falls
all year round; the least amount of rain can be expected during spring
and early summer. Because of its location on the sea there is less
chance of snow and subzero temperatures compared to the interior.
However, when there is a cold easterly current subzero temperatures
may occur, even during the day. During the summer an easterly current
may cause temperatures to soar, even in excess of 30 degrees Celsius.
Temperatures remain high during the evening, only after midnight
temperatures will drop below 20 degrees Celsius then.
