It snowed in Belgium this morning. Apparently.
According to the news reports, West Flanders has been coated in a light carpet of snow and the cold front is heading inland. This being Belgium, the Met office has issues a Code Yellow weather alert, indicating dangerous driving conditions.
There was no snow when I climbed into the car this morning and, even though I got up a little earlier than usual, just in case, the driving conditions to the station were better than they were on Friday.
In Brussels, we’ve seen a couple of flurries, nothing is settling.
According to Wttr, however, we’re in for a blizzard this afternoon. I will believe this when I see it.
That said, I like Wttr. It is the simplest weather site I have seen and it gives me a cruft-free overview of the weather forecast for today and tomorrow. When I check the weather, all I really want to know is whether I should wear a coat and Wttr gives me that information quickly and simply.
The site also appeals to the nerd in me in that I can also display it in a terminal. Simply typing
curl wttr.in will give me the forecast without my having to open a browser.
Looking out of the window again, some of the snow is starting to settle, but there isn’t much of it.
