Warnings for gales and storms for Belgium

We distinguish between weather watches and weather warnings.  A storm watch for Belgium is issued if a gale / storm in Belgium is probable but there are uncertainties about duration, intensity and/or the course of it.  Gale / storm warnings are released in three levels (orange, red, violet) that comply with the intensity of the expected storm gusts. The detailed and reliable forecasts of such gale or storm events are very important especially for the building industry, the agriculture, the forestry, insurances and event organisers of Belgium.
