After an unseasonably warm winter, forecasters are expecting a major drop in temperatures next week.

Warm weather, with temperatures of up to 20 degrees Centigrade, will last until Tuesday, but then a drop of 15 degrees is expected. Over three days we can expect strong winds, snow in the mountains and at times in the lowlands too. After this short burst of winter, we can expect a return to the warm weather, forecasters predict.
