Belgium has a temperate sea climate. The average temperature in Belgium is 11,2 degrees Celsius, but there are some differences which can be recorded to every region. This temperature exists, because the warm Gulf Stream in the Atlantic Ocean also warms up the North Sea. Because of that, in the winter the water does not go below a temperature of 5 degrees Celsius. The lowest temperature will be reached in the dead of winter, because then the water has cooled. Furthermore, the weather has a strong changeable character.
