WEATHER FORECAST: Mostly dry and settled weekend in store for Kilkenny
Kilkenny can look forward to a mostly settled weekend, with some frost and occaiosnal showers but temperatures typical for this time of year.
In its latest forecast, Met Éireann said overnight frost, mist and fog will clear this morning to leave a dry day, adding: “There’ll be a good lot of cloud across the country in general, but again a few bright or sunny spells will develop too. Highest temperatures generally of 5 to 9 degrees, in just light southeast or variable breezes.”
Tomorrow will also have a good deal of dry weather, with a mix of cloud and some brighter periods. Met Éireann said there will be “patches of light rain or drizzle too”, and highest temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees.
Sunday will begin cloudy in most areas and damp, with some lingering rain or drizzle. The national forecaster added: “Any patches of fog in the morning will be slow to clear. It will become drier in the afternoon with sunny spells developing, and just light northerly winds. Highest temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees. The night will be mostly clear and dry in largely calm conditions. Lowest temperatures of -1 to +2 degrees over the northern half of the country leading to some frost, milder further south.”
Plenty of dry weather and sunny spells are also forecast for Monday, but Met Éireann wanred there is a chance that there will be rain in the south west.
However, there is some uncertainty of how long these settled conditions will last, with signs of rain to move in from the west by midweek.
