Ireland could be hit with snow before the month is out, according to a new weather chart.

The forecast from Wxcharts predicts snow reaching parts of the east coast, the north and the south of Ireland between January 22 and 24.

Met Eireann said they will not comment on the predictions, but said that 'sudden stratospheric warming' in early January has increased the likelihood of cold weather.

Forecaster Gerry Murphy said: "Sudden stratospheric warming at the start of the month can sometimes bring cold weather to this part of the world.

"It increases the possibility of very cold weather at the end of the month, but that doesn't mean it will happen.

"It depends on a lot of factors and it's simply too far away to predict."

A staggering six inches of snow is expected in the UK, however the prediction for Ireland shows a lesser extreme of just one or two inches. 

In its latest long-term update, the UK Met Office said there are signs that colder winter weather, resulting from a sudden stratospheric warming, is on the way to Britain.

It has warned of snow, ice and widespread frost.

Meanwhile, it's set to be a rather mild weekend in Ireland.
