KILKENNY WEATHER: ‘Unusually cold’ – people urged to wrap up as temperatures plummet this week
Wrap up well this week – because temperatures are set to drop fairly dramatically in Kilkenny and across the country.
Met Éireann warned this week will be “unusually cold” for this time of year, but at least it appears the rain will stay away.
Earlier forecasts suggested some nights were expected to reach freezing conditions but now it is not predicted to go below 2 degrees.
Tuesday and Wednesday night will be the coldest of the week with lowest temperatures of 2 to 5 degrees expected, with highest temperatures of between just 11 to 14 degrees during the day.
It will be dry, thankfully, with Kilkenny and the south east escaping the showery outbreaks forecast for the northwest today and tomorrow.
Met Éireann said: “Any residual rain on the east coast will clear off early on Monday morning to leave a bright and mostly dry day, with sunny spells developing.
“Some scattered showers will continue to affect northern and western coasts however. Highest temperatures of 11 to 13 degrees, in moderate to fresh northwesterly winds.
“Overall, a good deal of dry weather developing during the week. Temperatures will remain pretty consistent around normal or a little below.”
