(JB) Luxembourg's meteorological office, Meteolux, has revised its weather warning issuing a more severe orange alert for Friday morning from 5am to 10am.

An orange alert means danger and is applied when temperatures are expected to fall between -11°C and -15°C as well as in the event of a heat wave.

Under an orange alert, people are warned that conditions pose a risk to health, above all for at-risk people such as the elderly, very young or people with cardiac or respiratory problems.

People are advised not to stay too long exposed to the cold and wind and to dress warmly in waterproof clothing.

Meteolux has maintained its yellow alert for Friday to Saturday morning when the temperature will fall to between -7°C and -9°C during the day and low as -10°C overnight. The mercury looks set to rise again on Saturday to around 0°C.
