Long range weather charts for beginnng of February (Source: Carlow Weather)
"No sign of any snow on lower levels in the short term but all the signals still pointing to cold end to January and start of February," says Alan O'Reilly of www.carlowweather.com.
He said: "Up to 10C on Tuesday and that could be the last time we see temperatures in double digits for a good while.
"Trending cooler from Wednesday as we finally start to see some proper winter weather!"
For what it’s worth (may not be be much) the ECMWF long range weekly charts just updated and still showing a cold end to the month. pic.twitter.com/Tfs3zWZfu2— Carlow Weather (@CarlowWeather) January 14, 2019
