Forget rain, it looks like it could snow on the parade.

Met Eireann is forecasting snow showers on St Patrick's day with temperatures dropping significantly over the weekend.

However it won't be a return to the blizzard conditions experienced earlier this month.


Forecaster Liz Gavin says the east and south of the country will bear the brunt:

"As we head towards the weekend - it is looking like very cold conditions are going to extend across the country for Saturday and Sunday...There is the likelihood of a few snow showers particularly along the East and the South of the country for the weekend."
