After placing Luxembourg on yellow alert for the night of Wednesday to Thursday, Météolux upgraded its warning level to amber.

Wind gusts of up to 110 km/h are expected throughout the country between 5am-8am.

Those travelling or commuting should be extra vigilant on Thursday morning. Branches are flying around and trees may have fallen onto roads. Leaves can also make the road surface more slippery. It is best to stay out of the woods during the day.
