Rare April snow falls in Brussels after unusually warm weather, Belgium

Snow fell in Brussels, Belgium, on Tuesday, April 6, 2021, which is considered an unusual weather event for this time of the year. The country, along with much of northwest Europe, previously experienced unusually warm weather and record temperatures at end of March.

Residents in Brussels woke up to a surprising dusting of snow on Tuesday, with trees, roofs, and grasses covered in white. 

Snow in the area during this time of the year is considered rare, especially since the country just recorded unusually warm temperatures in late March. 

Belgium had 13 stations beak local monthly temperature records on March 30 as most of northwest Europe also hit record levels.
