WEEKEND FORECAST: Weather set to take yet another turn
JUST when you thought it was safe to go outside…
Hopes that summer had finally made an appearance have been dashed by Met Éireann’s forecast for the weekend.
After a week of sun and relatively blue skies, Kilkenny and most of the rest of the country will experience yet another turn for the worse weather-wise.
According to the national forecaster, Kilkenny the rest of Leinster will experience lower temperatures and showers for much of the weekend.
Today will begin brightly enough, dry and fairly cloudy in the morning, with some sunny spells developing in the afternoon as some “scattered showers”. Highest temperatures will be between 14 and 16 degrees, considerably cooler than the past few days.
Met Éireann said tomorrow will “start mostly dry with just isolated showers”.
But it added: “It will be cloudier with showery rain in the north and east which will spread further westwards during the day. Some showers could turn heavy later. Maximum temperatures will be around 13 to 17 degrees.”
Showers will gradually die away tomorrow night and Sunday will see a mix of scattered showers with some sunny spells.
Met Éireann added: “Sunday night will be mostly dry with just a few coastal showers remaining. There will be good clear spells and lowest temperatures will fall to between 5 and 8 degrees in light northwesterly breezes with some mist patches forming.”
