Summer finally on the way with temperatures to soar to 20C: Met Éireann
SUMMER – finally – may be about to make an overdue appearance.
Met Éireann yesterday predicted heavy showers for this corner of the country that ultimately failed to materialise.
But it says this weekend is set to be a warm one with dry spells and sunshine expected in Kilkenny and across the country.
However, it will be next week before the sunshine really takes off with temperatures expected to reach into the 20s.
There will be a mix of showers and sunny spells today, with the heaviest occurring in the afternoon. Temperatures will reach highs of between 10C to 14C.
Calm conditions and temperatures ranging between 11C to 14C is expected for most of tomorrow.
And the mercury levels are set to rise to up to 17C on Sunday, according to the national forecaster.
Looking ahead to next week, Met Éireann is predicting temperatures ranging between 13C to 20C, with Wednesdays and Thursdays set to be the warmest days.
