KILKENNY WEATHER: Here (finally) comes the sun! Met Éireann forecasts welcome change this week
The miserable May we’ve endured so far this month will continue day and into tomorrow. But there’s good news on the horizson after Met Éireann revealed we’re in for some long overdue sunny spells from the middle of the week.
Today will bring more showers, with longer spells of thundery rain in places later. But the national forecaster added: “Some sunny spells during the day too though. Breezy in moderate to fresh northwest winds. Highest temperatures of 11 to 15 degrees Celsius, coolest across Atlantic counties.”
It will remain cloudy tomorrow, with patchy outbreaks of rain in the southwest. But it will be drier and brighter elsewhere with just isolated showers mostly over Ulster. Met Éireann said: “It will become mostly dry and clear across the country through the evening. Highest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees. Moderate northwest winds in most places, but the winds light variable in southwestern coastal parts.”
Things will take a welcome turn for the better on Wednesday, which will be dry and sunny in most areas, with highest temperatures of 13 to 17 degrees.
Thursday will be mostly dry with hazy sunshine over much of the country, but cloud will gradually increase from the west from late morning with rain following into Western fringes through the afternoon and evening hours. It will be warmer too, with highest temperatures ranging between 15 to 19 degrees.
Met Éireann said the rain will become patchy while extending to most parts on Thursday night, with a slow clearance to brighter showery conditions on Friday. And it had some more welcome news for next weekend, adding: “Current indications are for a mostly dry and warm weekend to follow.”
