KILKENNY WEATHER: Just when you thought it was safe to go outside …
Met Éireann has forecast a very wet week ahead.
After a relatively dry weekend, Kilkenny will enjoy a bright sunny start to the week today. But the fine weather won’t last long as rain and drizzle return in the evening. It will also be milder than recent days, with temperatures falling to as low as 11 degrees.
The national forecast said things will become “unsettled until midweek, with rain at times, heaviest on Tuesday night and early Wednesday”. But on a positive note, it said conditions will be more settled for Friday and next weekend.
Tomorrow is set to be “rather cloudy with patchy light rain and drizzle lingering into the afternoon in places” and temperature highs of 17 to 20 degrees.
Wednesday will have a wet, breezy start with rain clearing eastwards through the afternoon. But it will also get a bit warmer, with temperatures rising to between 18 to 21 degrees.
Thursday will bring showers with a mix of cloud and sunny spells and temperature highs of between 17 to 20 degrees, although the rain will be most frequent in the west.
Things look a lot brighter for next weekend though. Met Éireann said high pressure will build on Friday and into the weekend, “bringing increasingly dry and settled weather with sunny spells”. The forecaster added: “Temperatures around average as we move into September, with highs of 16 to 18 degrees.”
