KILKENNY WEATHER: Miserable few days forecast but brighter Bank Holiday weekend looms
Kilkenny is in for a fairly miserable few days weather wise, but thankfully the outlook is better for the looming Easter Bank Holiday weekend.
In its latest forecast, Mat Éireann said today will be “a cloudy or overcast day”, with heavy rain in the south in the morning and rain in western parts too. The national forecaster added: “Drier elsewhere for a time, but the rain will extend northeastwards across the country during the late morning and afternoon, heavy at times. Drier weather will follow on from the south later, but with showers following too, some heavy. Breezy for a time with moderate to fresh southeast winds, but the winds will ease later. Highest temperatures of 10 to 13 or 14 degrees, mildest in the southwest.”
The unsettled but fairly mild conditions are set to continue for the next few days.
Met Éireann said tomorrow will see “a good deal of cloud with widespread showers, many heavy, with hail showers possible”. It added: “Some sunnier periods likely in the afternoon. Mild with highest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees. Winds will be mainly light and variable, but blustery at times around showers.”
Wednesday will be rather cloudy to start with some bright spells developing during the day along with scattered shower and highest temperatures of between 13 to 16 degrees.
There is still some uncertainty around Thursday. At the moment Met Éireann said it looks like it will be quite cloudy again with some showers, “but with the chance of a more widespread spell of rain moving in from the west”. Temperatures will rise to between 13 and 16 degrees.
Early indications suggest that it will be stay mild with showers on Friday, but the national forecaster added: “Drier weather over the weekend is likely, possibly turning cooler for eastern and southern areas though. Winds will generally be light or moderate and southerly.”
