The cold snap could be making a comeback. There's reports that 'Beast From The East' style weather could return to Ireland this weekend.
TV3 weatherman Deric Hartigan tweeted a photo last night showing that "something is stirring" for St Patrick's weekend but nothing has been confirmed just yet.

However, a spokesperson for Met Eireann told The Irish Sun that there's a 50-50 chance the freezing weather will return.
“We would not forecast as far as the weekend. At the moment we are forecasting until Thursday.
“The weekend is actually quite uncertain. What we have is several low pressure systems in the mid-Atlantic at the moment.
“For Wednesday and Thursday it will become very windy, it will be a very wet day on Wednesday.
“On Thursday this low pressure system is going to stay in situ for another day or three and that is basically what we can say.
“However, there is a high pressure system over Scandinavia, so it is a battle between them – basically Ireland is sitting on the fence between the low pressure and high pressure.”
“I wouldn’t want to put any bets on it. With the high pressure over Scandinavia it could, literally, go either way.”
