WEATHER FORECAST: Kilkenny braced for more thunderstorms
Following some of the most dramatic thunderstorms and lightning in recent memory, Kilkenny faces more unsettled weather over the coming days.

Kilkenny and the south east can look forward to the best of the weather forecast for Tuesday, with sunny spells developing in the eastern half of the country sparking off some thundery afternoon showers.
Met Éireann said: “Highest temperatures of 15 to 21 degrees, warmest in the east, Winds will be light northwest or variable.”
Wednesday will be mostly cloudy to begin with, the forecaster said, with the best of the sunny spells developing in the east.
“Afternoon showers, some heavy, will develop mostly in Munster and Leinster. Highest temperatures of 16 to 20 degrees in light northerly breezes,” Met Éireann added.
On Thursday low cloud mist and fog will clear in the east during the morning with a risk of heavy afternoon showers developing and highest temperatures of between 16 to 20 degrees.
