WEATHER FORECAST: Kilkenny to bask in autumn sun as temperatures soar to 26 degrees
Kilkenny is in for another big weather change over the coming days, but thankfully this time it’s for the better.
In its latest forecast, Met Éireann forecast a largely dry and at times very hot week ahead, with temperatures soaring to up to 26 degrees in places at times.
It said today will be “very warm with good spells of sunshine in many areas”, including Kilkenny and the south east, with highest temperatures of 20 to 25 degrees.
Tomorrow will also be a dry and very warm day, with long spells of sunshine developing after morning mist and fog clear. Met Éireann said: “Highest temperatures of 22 to 26 degrees with light east to southeast breezes. Tuesday night will be dry in many areas. However, some showers will develop in Munster overnight. It will be very mild and humid with temperatures of 15 or 16 degrees.”
However, conditions will worsen on Wednesday as scattered showers developout through the day. The national forecaster added: “These will become heavier and more widespread through the evening and night. Highest temperatures of 20 to 24 degrees with light to moderate southeast breezes. Heavy showers will continue overnight with temperatures of 15 or 16 degrees.”
Met Éireann said Thursday will be “a showery day with widespread heavy showers and a possibility of thunderstorms and some spot flooding” and highest temperatures of 19 to 21 degrees.
The national forecaster said Firday will bring a mixture of “sunshine and showers”, but it added: “They shouldn’t be as heavy or as widespread. Highest temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees with light west or southwest breezes.”
Current indications suggest next weekend will bring a fair amount of dry weather and some scattered showers with temperatures in the mid to high teens.
