Luxembourg's weather service Météolux have issued an “orange alert” across the country for Thursday afternoon, due to violent gusts of winds that could reach between 90 and 110km per hour.

While it was already windy in the morning and early afternoon, the worst period is forecast to hit the country between 4pm and 7pm by the south-west winds.

An orange alert means that there is a possibility of falling trees and branches. Roofs and chimneys could be damaged and road traffic could be disrupted.

It is therefore recommended to be extra vigilant, especially for possible flying objects during the worst period if outside.
