(CS) With temperatures around and below 0°C expected for the night from Saturday to Sunday, motorists are urged to watch out for black ice, especially in the north of the country.

Along several country roads there was a thick layer of frost on Saturday morning. Alnost looking like snow the frost had formed as the thick fog that has been lying over Luxembourg for several days froze overnight.

While it may make Luxembourg look more like a winter wonderland in the run-up to Christmas, this icy layer can be treacherous for motorists, but also pedestrians and cyclists.

With temperatures expected to drop below 0°C, national weather service Meteolux has warned motorists of black ice and slippery roads. Drivers are urged to adapt their speed to the wintery conditions.
