What's good news for snow and winter fans, is bad news for motorists, especially those that have long drives to work on this first week day of 2017.

(sth) – First snow falls had been announced for quite some time, but up until now, white landscapes were mostly due to frost. On Monday morning, Luxembourg finally woke up to some real snowy landscapes.

What's good news for snow and winter fans, is bad news for motorists, especially those that have long drives to work on this first week day of 2017.

To be sure that roads remain accessible, Highways Agency the “Ponts et Chaussées” has been active in the early morning hours to rid the lanes of snow and ice, gritting all the main roads as a precautionary measure.

Monday will see continued snow falls throughout the day with temperatures however rising to possibly as much as 3°C.

The coming days will be similar, but the snow fun could be spoiled by rainfall on Tuesday or Wednesday.
