WEEKEND WEATHER: Has spring finally sprung in Kilkenny? Met Éireann says sunny spells finally on way
We may have some time to go before we emerge from lockdown, but at least we can look forward to warmer and sunnier days ahead as we adapt to life under the shadow of the pandemic.
Met Éireann has given an upbeat forecast for Kilkenny and much of the rest of the county this weekend, with temperatures rising and some very welcome sunny spells after a largely miserable February so far.
This morning will be dry and bright with any frost quickly clearing. The national forecaster said: “Cloud will increase during the afternoon with one or two light passing showers later in the afternoon and evening. Highest temperatures of 10 or 11 degrees with a moderate southwest breeze.”
Tomorrow will begin cloudy in many places to start with, but things will brighten up later in the morning. Met Éireann added: “There will be occasional outbreaks of light showery rain or drizzle during the day. The western half of the country will have the best of the sunny spells through the afternoon. Highest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees with light southwest or variable winds.”
Overnight fog will be slow to clear on Sunday morning. Met Éireann said it will be dry with low cloud lingering throughout the day in many areas, some drizzle possible near western coasts and highest temperatures of between 7 to 11 degrees.
The dry and sunny spells will continue into next week, with temperatures on Monday rising to 11 degrees at times.
Current indications suggest Tuesday and Wednesday will be mild and a little breezier. But Met Éireann added: “It will likely be cloudy at times with some outbreaks of rain and drizzle, driest across the north and northeast.”
