KILKENNY WEATHER: Lazy, hazy days of summer to continue … but not for long
Kilkenny will continue to enjoy a few beautiful days of warm and sunny weather, but Met Éireann has warned things will take a bit of a turn this week.
The country will bask in highs of 26 to 27 degrees today and tomorrow, but Wednesday will see the sunshine sizzle back down to normality.
The national forecaster said: “Monday will continue warm, dry and mostly sunny. Highest temperatures of 22C to 27C, warmest in the midlands and west and a degree or two lower on eastern coasts with light easterly breezes.
“Tuesday will be dry and warm in many areas. The best of the sunshine will be in Leinster and Munster. Connacht and Ulster will become cloudier as outbreaks of rain develop in the northwest during the afternoon.
“This rain will gradually move southeastwards through the evening and early night. It will mostly clear, but will linger near east and southeast coasts.”
Despite some showers on Tuesday, Wednesday will see the real turn in weather, as temperatures drop to 17 degrees.
Met Éireann added: “Wednesday will be much cooler than previous days with highest temperatures ranging from 11C in the north to 17C in the south and moderate to fresh northerly winds.
“It will be mostly cloudy in Leinster and east Munster with outbreaks of rain, but brighter and drier to the west and north with some sunny intervals.”
Sadly, temperatures will remain in the mid-teens for the rest of the week.
