Were you given a present of a nice warm scarf and gloves over Christmas? Well, if you haven't broken them in already, this week is the time to do it.

Met Éireann is forecasting 'very cold' conditions over the coming days with widespread frost and minimum temperatures of minus three degrees tonight (Sunday).

The cold weather will continue into the start of the week, with showers on Monday 'turning wintry overnight, falling as a mixture of rain, hail, sleet and snow.' This will lead to icy roads the following morning.

Tuesday is expected to be a 'very cold day' with sunny spells (yay) and widespread showers (awww). 'Further wintry falls' are also expected with lows of minus two degrees.

On top of all that, Carlow Weather says it will be 'cold on Sunday night and frosty with low windchill on Monday morning'

While Carlow Weather expects 'snow on higher ground', it predicts that we will 'escape the real cold from the east later next week.'

Probably best not to take any chances.
