Snow on the M7 during March 2018

Weather charts are showing an icy blast hitting Carlow and most of the country next week with the likelihood of snow. 

Advance forecasts are predicting snow falling on low ground as well as high ground. 

According to weather charts by weather data site www.Wxcharts.com, the snow conditions (shown in purple) are likely to hit on Tuesday night into Wednesday. 

Irish Weather online experts also said colder air may make a brief appearance around the night of Tuesday and Wednesday.

However these conditions will then quickly swing back to mild temperatures by the end of the week.

The start of February will see with a very mild start with temperatures well above average.

The www.carlowweather.com page on Facebook is forecasting a "short, cold blast possible around January 27 to 29".
