There are rumblings from certain forecasters online of a possible Beast from the East 2.0 for St Patrick's weekend. 

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

Friday will be a balmy 8C in Kilkenny with some rainfall also expected. St Patrick's Day on Saturday will see freezing temperatures but there will be some sunshine in the afternoon. 

Sunday will see temperatures fall to a chilly -1C and Monday is expected to be even slightly colder.
