KILKENNY WEATHER: Cold days ahead, but ray of hope on the horizon
Spring hasn’t exactly sprung yet, but there is – finally – a ray of hope on the horizon for Kilkenny weather watchers.
This week will be unsettled at first, but the rain will clear over the coming days as we enjoy some rare bright and sunny spells, although it will be very cold at times, especially overnight.
Met Éireann said today will be mostly cloudy, with patchy rain and drizzle for a time and becoming mainly dry later in the day. It will be fairly mild, with lowest temperatures of between 5 to 8 degrees.
With the Covid-19 emergency, St Patrick’s Day events across the country have been cancelled. The good news is that the south and the east of the country will escape the rain forecast in other parts of the country, with good dry spells to enjoy if you do decide to venture outdoors tomorrow and temperature highs of between 10 to 15 degrees.
It will be a fairly wet and cloudy start to Wednesday, clearing later in the afternoon but it may linger along southern coastal areas for the day with highest temperatures of between 7 to 12 degrees forecast.
Met Éireann said Thursday and Friday will be cold, but mainly dry, with sunny spells but colder than normal, with “daytime highs of 6 to 9 degrees and frosty nights”.
