WEATHER FORECAST: Sun to come out and play in Kilkenny on St Patrick’s Day
Kilkenny is set to enjoy a sunny St Patrick’s Day before the weather turns cloudier and cooler again later in the week.

Tomorrow will begin cloudy, with patchy outbreaks of rain or drizzle in most places on, but dry and sunny conditions in the northwest will extend to all areas by the afternoon. Met Éireann said: “A pleasant afternoon for most as temperatures increase to between 11 and 16 degrees, but light to moderate north to northwest winds keeping it coolest in northern areas.”
St Patrick’s Day on Wednesday will enjoy the best of this week’s weather. The national forecaster added: “St Patrick’s Day will be dry with good spells of sunshine. Feeling pleasant too in light, variable breezes and afternoon temperatures of 12 to 16 degrees.”
Thursday looks like it will start off cloudy with some patchy drizzle in the west, but becoming dry with sunny spells through the afternoon and highest temperatures of 8 to 11 degrees.
Met Éireann said the outloook for the rest of the week is for “a good deal of dry weather” but it will remain cool and quite cloudy at times.
