WEEKEND WEATHER: Kilkenny braced for wet few days, but some sunny spells on the horizon
The autumn nights have well and truly crept by now and Kilkenny’s in for a fairly wet and cool weekend ahead too.
In its latest forecast, Met Éireann warned of ‘changeable’ conditions over the coming days, with temperatures dropping to the mid-teens.
It said today will be “wet and dull”, with rain persisting for much of the day over the eastern half of the country, turning heavy at times through the afternoon. Met Éireann said: “The west will see drier, brighter weather developing by afternoon with some sunshine breaking through then. Highest temperatures of 15 to 18 degrees with moderate southerly winds, fresh to strong along coasts.”
Tomorrow will be largely dry with sunny spells to begin and a few showers, but rain will push into western counties later in the afternoon with highest temperatures of 15 to 18 degrees.
Overnight rain will linger in many parts during Sunday, becoming drier and brighter later in the day with highest temperatures again rising to between 15 to 18 degrees. The national forecaster said Sunday night will be mainly dry with clear spells and some patchy mist or fog.
Monday, thankfully, looks brighter, with Met Éireann forecasting: “A good deal of dry weather on Monday, with scattered showers moving in from the west through the day mixed with sunny spells. Highest temperatures of 15 to 18 degrees in light winds. Dry and clear in many areas overnight with a few showers in western coastal counties.”
Current indications suggest Tuesday will bring similar temperatures “with a mix of showers and bright spells”, Met Éireann added.
