However Met Éireann is now forecasting that St Patrick's weekend will simply "be very cold" but despite this Kilkenny may just see some sunshine for the festivities.

A cold easterly wind will settle over the country on St Patrick's Day with day time temperatures for the parades of just 3 to 6 degrees, but it will feel even colder than that.

The warning came as Met Éireann issued a Status Yellow alert for heavy rainfall predicted over the next 24 hours.

The front won't bring conditions anything like as harsh as "The Beast from the East" two weeks ago, but will ensure temperatures are between four and six degrees below normal for St Patrick's weekend.

Many areas will become dry, but some showers will move in to eastern coastal counties, mainly of rain or sleet. Saturday night will be very cold and frosty, with scattered snow showers in the eastern half of the country, but mainly dry elsewhere. Winds will be strongest along southern areas at first but gradually extending to all parts of Leinster by late morning and afternoon.

A Met Éireann spokeswoman advised that parade-goers should wrap up warm. However, it will also result in the weather from Friday through to Sunday being exceptionally cold.
