Details

For now, the RMI provides little information and only up to 36 hours in advance. There seems to be no historical temperature data.

In the nearby future, more data will be opened up since the RMI is a state owned company and thus should open it its data by default. (http://www.openknowledge.be/2015/07/24/green-light-for-the-belgian-federal-open-data-strategy/)
