We're really starting to expect the worst about the next week.
First Met Éireann issued a status yellow warning until next Friday where we can expect "exceptionally cold" weather, then we heard the Midland Weather Channel predict there could be as much as 40cm of snow coming our way, and now Joanna Donnelly is even telling us that we should be on the look out for a status red weather warning too.
Red is bad, people, very bad.
The Met Éireann meteorologist told Independent.ie, depending on the nature of the showers we get in the coming days, that the weather situation might be upgraded to a status orange or red.
Disruptions caused by the accumulation of snow are expected, with the eastern and south-eastern coasts bearing the brunt of these conditions, but they may also make their way inland.
With Arctic winds coming our way, we can expect temperatures as low as -4°, ice, snow, potentially impassable roads and maybe even business closures this week.
Now if anyone needs us, we're gonna do the sensible thing and hole up in a duvet fort for the next seven days where the Beast From The East can't find us.
