WEEKEND WEATHER: ‘Brighter spells’ for Kilkenny and south east forecast
Kilkenny faces more wintery wet and windy weather over the coming days, but at least we can look forward to some dry and brighter conditions over the weekend.
In its latest forecast, Met Éireann said today will be ‘mostly dry’ and that cloudy and drizzly conditions will mainly affect the north west of the country. The national forecaster added: “Some brighter spells too, with the best of these across Leinster and Munster. Feeling a little less cold with highest temperatures of 10 to 12 degrees Celsius, in light to moderate westerly breezes.”
It will be windy tomorrow, with a band of rain extending across the country from the northwest. But again the forecast is more upbeat for this corner of the country, with Met Éireann adding: “Parts of the southeast will stay dry till evening. Drier clearer conditions and a few showers will follow from the northwest through the late afternoon and evening. Mild too with highs of 12 to14 degrees in fresh to strong and gusty southwest winds.”
Met Éireann said Sunday will be ‘mainly dry with some pleasant sunny spells’ and just the chance of a stray coastal shower. It added: “Turning a little fresher again too with highs of 10 to 12 degrees in mostly moderate northwesterly winds.”
Monday will be mild and mostly cloudy with some patchy light rain or drizzle, with highest temperatures of 12 to 14 degrees.
There is still some uncertainty regarding Tuesday, but Met Éireann said it will likely be cloudy with outbreaks of rain, “some turning heavy at times and it may get blustery for a time” and highest temperatures similar to Monday.
Wednesday is set to be a brighter, fresher day with sunshine and showers, remaining unsettled but, according to Met Éireann, “on the milder side towards the end of the week”.
