WEEKEND WEATHER: Kilkenny braced for big change next week as unusual conditions hit
After a welcome few largely bright and dry early winter days in Waterford, Met Éireann has warned we’ll see yet another turn in weather over the coming days.
The national forecaster said it will become milder and more unsettled in the south east this weekend and into early next week.
And it warned a change is on the way next week as unusual “milder than average” conditions are expected.
Today will be a mostly dry day once mist patches clear in the morning, with a mix of cloud and sunny spells and highest temperatures of up to 10 to 12 degrees.
Met Éireann said tomorrow will be “a cloudier day overall with outbreaks of rain in Munster and south Leinster edging slowly northwards through the day and becoming light and patchy”.
The national forecaster added: “It will likely hold mostly dry in parts of the north and northwest with the best of any sunny spells there. More persistent rain will move into the south later in the day. Highest temperatures of 9 to 13 degrees in light to moderate easterly breezes.”
Sunday will also be a cloudy days with patchy outbreaks of rain and drizzle forecast. But Met Éireann said: “Drier conditions will develop in some areas through the evening. Highest temperatures of 11 to 14 degrees in light to moderate east to southeast breezes.”
The outlook for next week is “milder than average” but more unsettled conditions are expected with “longer spells of rain” coming from the south of the country.
