Luxembourg's weather service Météolux have issued an “orange alert” of snow for Thursday and Friday with up to 15cm forecast for the north of the country.

Luxembourg's weather service Météolux have issued an “orange alert” of snow for Thursday and Friday with up to 15cm forecast for the north of the country.

The worst times appear to be between 11pm on Thursday evening and 8am Friday morning when the north especially will be hit.

Moderate snowfall is expected across the rest of the country from 5pm on Thursday right up until Saturday where about 2 to 4cm currently forecast.

But that's not all. Strong winds are also predicted from Thursday evening at 11pm, until Friday morning with some gusts reaching between 65 and 85 km per hour and sweeping across the Grand Duchy.

The orange alert in the north means that traffic conditions could become quite treacherous and difficult especially in forest areas with the possibility of falling trees, says Météolux.
