Weather in Antwerp

Antwerp has a sub-oceanic, humid climate marked by relatively cold winters and refreshingly cool summers brought in by the Atlantic Ocean. It’s regarded as a great year-round destination.

Summer (June to September) sees pleasantly warm and sunny weather with average temperatures between 20°C and 25°C (68°F and 77°F). August is typically the hottest month, but some say summer is a good time to visit Antwerp because many inhabitants go on holiday. Note that July has the greatest rainfall.

Autumn (October and November) offers cold, wet and windy weather. The average temperature falls in the mid-teens (around 55°F) and the sunshine is far less frequent.

Winter (December to February) is generally unpleasant, as night-time temperatures hover around freezing and sit a few degrees above this during the day. January is the coldest month, and while snowfall is frequent it is not abundant.

Spring (March to May) sees the sunshine levels gradually rise. The period has an average temperature of 18°C (65°F), which is a pleasant climate to explore street markets and festivals galore. This means late spring and early autumn are probably the best times to visit Antwerp, as you’ll avoid summer tourists without having to endure chilly drops in temperature.

Actual Forecast Location: We have 830+ weather locations on the worldtravelguide.net website. Where no exact location is available we have used the nearest appropriate forecast point.
Symbols indicate the predominant weather for the day in question, calculated based on a weighting of different types of weather. So if a day is forecast to be sunny with the possibility of a brief shower, then we will see a sunny or partly cloudy symbol rather than a rain cloud.
The maximum temperature is the highest temperature forecast between dawn and dusk, and the minimum temperature is the lowest temperature expected from dusk on the day in question to dawn the next day. The temperature is in °C, or Celsius.
Wind speed and direction are the conditions expected at midday. Wind direction is based on a 16 point compass. W, SW, SSW, etc. The wind direction states where the wind originates. Wind speed is listed in MPH or miles per hour.
Humidity levels indicates how much water vapour the air contains compared to the maximum it could contain at that temperature. As a general guide:
  • 0 to 30 is very low
  • 31 to 50 is low
  • 51 to 70 is moderate to low
  • 71 to 80 is moderate
  • 81 to 90 is moderate to high
  • 91 to 100 is high
Pressure is measured in millibars (mb)
Visibility based on whether the human eye can see the following distances:
  • Very poor - less than 1km
  • Poor - between 1km and 4km
  • Moderate - between 4km and 10km
  • Good - between 10km and 20km
