Looking out of the window in Luxembourg this Monday afternoon at bright sunny skies, it may seem as far as you can get from snow and minus temperatures, but that's exactly what is forecast for Tuesday, in the north of the country at least!

(ADW) Looking out of the window in Luxembourg this Monday afternoon at bright sunny skies, it may seem as far as you can get from snow and minus temperatures, but that's exactly what is forecast for Tuesday, in the north of the country at least!

According to Luxembourg's weather service Météolux, up to three centimetres of snow are expected on Tuesday in the Oesling region of the Grand Duchy, which is essentially anywhere north of Ettelbruck,

The white stuff is forecast to fall between 10am and 7pm triggering a “yellow alert” by the weather service.

Temperature are predicted to fluctuate wildly from -1 to 6°C accompanied with winds of up to 25km an hour possible.

And it isn't just Tuesday that will be hit as for the rest of the week more snow and rain is forecast with temperatures decreasing significantly.

Saturday should be the coldest day of this week when temperatures as low as -5°C are possible according to Météolux.

Let's hope these weather extremities are reserved just for the north and the Oesling region while Guttland, south of Ettelbruck, are a bit milder.
