‘Cool and unsettled’ – see what’s in store for Kilkenny weather-wise this week
ANY hopes that the second week of June would be an improvement on last week’s dreary and unpredictable weather have been dashed by the national forecaster.
Met Éireann has predicted another unsettled week ahead, with unseasonably cool temperatures forecast for Kilkenny and the rest of the country.
But as the weekend – which was largely dry and sunny in this part of the country barring some showers – showed, the weather has become so changeable even the forecasters are having trouble predicting it accurately. So hopefully there may be some more pleasant surprises over the coming days.
Today began brightly, with good sunny spells this morning but with showers developing later on. Some of the showers will be heavy with the risk of thunder.
Tomorrow will be mainly dry and bright, with a mix of cloud and sunny spells, but a few scattered showers will develop during the day. Highest temperatures will be between 14 to 18 degrees.
The forecast is less clear for Wednesday, but early indications are for a spell of persistent and heavy rain to move gradually in from the east, becoming widespread across Kilkenny and Leinster by the end of the day.
And the unsettled weather is set to continue into Thursday and next weekend, according to the national forecaster.
Met Éireann said: “Current indications suggest that the weather will remain relatively cool and unsettled with scattered showers and possibly longer spells of rain at times, but good sunny spells also.”
