WEATHER FORECAST: Make hay while the sun shines – Kilkenny’s in for another change in conditions
Kilkenny and the south east looks to have the best of the weather for the weekend, so make hay while the sun shines as a change in conditions is forecast for early next week.
Today will be dry and sunny around Kilkenny with temperatures remaining quiet hot, hitting 19 degrees or possibly 20 in places.
But the national forecaster warned things will get considerably cooler tonight. Met Éireann said: “A cool night for June with lowest temperatures of between 3 and 7 degrees in mostly light northwest breezes with some mist patches forming.”
Kilkenny and the rest of the South East of the country will continue to enjoy dry and sunny spells tomorrow. But it will be a little more overcast, bringing the chance of some light showers and maximum temperatures of 16 to 18 degrees.
Met Éireann added: “Rain will develop in western counties from the afternoon that will spread to other areas later in the day.”
Saturday night will be warmer than Friday, with temperatures up to 14 degrees.
Sunday will bring a change in conditions, with a strong chance of showers and some strong breezes. Temperatures will remain in the mid-high teens, with heavy cloud covers, so conditions could be quite muggy.
Monday will see heavier and more persistent showers and a slight drop in temperatures with highs of just 17 degrees.
The national forecaster said: “Showers look set to be heaviest and most frequent in southern counties with a risk of thunderstorms.”
And the outlook for the start of next week is much the same. Met Éireann added: “Trend towards mixed weather into next week with sunny spells and showers.”
