The Met Office has issued two yellow weather warnings for snow and ice on Sunday and Monday.
The experts warn that Sunday morning will be particularly cold and that icy patches are likely to form on untreated roads, pavements and cycle paths.
Forecasters are warning road users to stay safe as there will be an increased risk of injuries from slips and falls as well as hazardous driving conditions.
Ice will be at its most dangerous between 2am and 10am on Sunday morning.
On Monday, the region is forecast to be blessed (or cursed) with wintry showers. Snow and sleet is expected to fall from around 8pm on Sunday night and continue well into Monday morning, as the warning is issued until 10am.
Forecasters warn that some roads and railways are likely to be affected and journey times will be increased.
Icy patches are again likely to develop and so they are warning drivers and walkers to be vigilant and take care while travelling.
