This week is going to see the first of the major cold weather hitting, with Met Éireann warning of inbound polar lows.

Just as we are dealing with the widespread floods, Met Éireann have issued another warning, this time for extreme cold weather set to hit the country.

This could mean snow hitting certain parts of the country by the weekend. The first of the real cold will hit Wednesday night, with the forecasters warning of temperatures dropping to 0 degrees.

Though, it is Thursday when the weather will start to turn worse, with temperatures set to drop as low as minus three on Thursday night. Met Eireann say "winds will become cyclonic variable in the north" and with polar lows moving in over northern counties.

This means Friday will start with “frost and ice”, with to be found on higher ground with the odd flurry in lower areas. If you were hoping for a white Christmas, your wish may have come true.
