WEATHER UPDATE: See what’s in store for Kilkenny this week
IT’S going to be a wet and unseasonably cool start to the week in Kilkenny, Met Éireann has forecast.
The national forecaster said this morning will get off to a dry and bright start, but “scattered” showers will hit the county and the rest of Leinster later on, with highest temperatures of between 15 nd 16 degrees.
There’ll be sunny spells and scattered showers on Tuesday too, “once again most frequent in the east”.
Met Éireann added: “Temperatures of between 13 and 18 degrees … Tuesday night will be mainly dry and temperatures will fall to between 5 and 7 degrees.”
Wednesday will begin largely dry throughout the country. But the national forecaster warned: “Cloud will build from the west and rain will develop later, becoming widespread and persistent overnight. Temperatures will be between 13 and 15 degrees.”
Thursday will be a showery day with southwesterly winds and temperatures typical for the time of year.
Local weather guru Alan O’Reilly of Carlow Weather summed up the mixed bag of conditions over the coming days: “NAO staying negative with no raging Atlantic but also no real heat on the longer term trends. In summary not bad but not good.”
