Met Office: Weather Warning Issued For Snow, Ice and Strong winds
Had enough of winter yet? Sick of sitting on the couch backwards with your freezing toes on the radiator? Tired of waking up in the morning and tip-toeing across the icy tiles to the shower?
Well I've got some bad news for you. This week is going to see temperatures in the UK plummet even further down and could see large parts of the country covered in snow and hail.
If you're in Northern Ireland, Scotland (obviously) and the North of England you could be in for up to 10cm of snow, particularly if you live on higher ground.
The Met Office has issued a yellow warning covering Northern Ireland and most of Scotland that lasts from 6pm today until Wednesday morning.
As is always the case with any kind of weather, you can expect there to be traffic and public transport disruptions.
The warning reads: "Frequent and heavy hail and snow showers are likely to affect many parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland from Monday evening, continuing for much of the day on Tuesday.
"Travel delays on roads are possible, with a small chance of cancellations to public transport.
"There is a small chance that power cuts will occur and other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may be affected.
"In addition some roads and pavements may become icy, increasing the chance of injuries from slips and falls.

"This warning has been updated to extend its validity time into Wednesday."
The North West of England could be in for a bit of a battering too as heavy winds and rain are forecast throughout the early parts of the week. This will move South East across the country ensuring that everyone gets their share of the misery.
Also, as mentioned earlier, the temperatures aren't going to improve either.
Even sunny London can expect to see highs of about 5, dropping to 1 or 2 at night.
In the grim North that will likely be even lower - and with the wind and the rain, you're probably better off looking at whether you can just sit the next few days out.
It might improve towards the end of the week, but there's equally as good a chance that heavy showers will stick around across the country.
All of this means that it's probably going to feel as if spring is a long way off this week - and it is, so I suppose we are just getting what we deserve.
Whatever you do, be safe out there folks.
