Luxembourg weather alert lifted, with no major accidents

The Luxembourg weather alert (red for the north and orange for the south) announced on Friday by Meteolux, has now been lifted as temperatures rise above zero and ice patches melt.

(ADW) Good news for residents as the Luxembourg weather alert (red for the north and orange for the south) announced on Friday by Meteolux, has now been lifted as temperatures rise above zero and ice patches melt. 

It began with rain on Friday falling on existing snow and ice patches and temperatures dropping below freezing to form extremely slippery sheets of ice.

While this was only really a one-day event in Luxembourg, in some places in western Europe these conditions continue.

Despite the alert being lifted, a few icy patches remain in some places with temperatures ranging between 0 and 4°C, therefore extra caution when driving is still advised.

In the south of the country, the ice arrived a little later than originally forecast by Meteolux. Just after 7pm the rain began to fall and for now, no major incidents or accidents have been reported.
