KILKENNY WEATHER: Here comes the sun! Temperatures to soar to 18 degrees this weekend
Kilkenny residents can look forward to lots of sunny spells this weekend with temperatures soaring to as high as 18 degrees in parts.
In its latest forecast, Met Éireann said there will be some mist and fog patches this morning, but it will become sunnier as the day progresses. It added: “It will be largely dry, however the odd shower may break out, mainly in parts of Leinster and Ulster. There’s a slight chance that a little bit of sea fog may encroach onto some coastal parts at times. Highest temperatures generally of 14 to 18 degrees, a little lower though in coastal parts of the east and north, in a light variable or easterly breeze.”
Overnight mist and fog will clear from most areas tomorrow morning but may linger along some coasts. Met Éireann said: “It will be a dry day with sunny spells and a light easterly breeze. Highest temperatures of 13 to 17 degrees, coolest near southern and eastern coasts.”
The forecaster said more overnight mist and fog will clear from most areas on Sunday morning but may persist along parts of the north and east coast, adding: “It will be dry with sunny spells and light east to southeast or variable winds. Highest temperatures of 13 to 17 degrees.”
More sunny spells and some “well scattered showers” are forecast for Monday, with highest temperatures of 10 to 15 degrees.
However, current indications suggest it will turn colder towards the middle of next week, with the increased possibility of showers and chance of some frost by night.
