Just when they told us it wasn’t safe to go outside … the weather finally settles!
Kilkenny and most of the country can finally look forward to some settled weather over the weekend and into next week, according to the national forecaster.
In its latest forecast, Met Éireann said high pressure will keep our weather “reasonably settled”, with prolonged dry and sunny spells and temperatures rising to “near normal” levels later in the weekend.
There will be a bright and cold start to today, with frost and icy patches clearing later in the morning. The clouds will increase over southern counties as the day goes on, with temperature highs of between 7 to 9 degrees.
Tomorrow is set to be a mostly cloudy day, though it will be dry throughout much of the east. “Gusty east to southeast winds will gradually moderate. Top temperatures 6 to 9 degrees,” the national forecaster said.
Sunday will be mainly dry with a mix of cloud and bright or sunny intervals. Rain and drizzle will become increasingly confined to coastal areas, with temperature highs of 8 to 11 degrees.
Monday will again be cloudy, but largely dry, with highest temperatures between 9 to 11 degrees.
More cloudy conditions are forecast for Tuesday, along with some scattered rain extending southeastwards over the country during the day.
The national forecaster added: “Moderate to fresh and gusty southerly winds, easing and becoming light northwesterly or variable during the afternoon and evening. Highs of 9 to 11 degrees.”
