WEEKEND WEATHER: Kilkenny to enjoy more autumn sun before another change hits
Kilkenny and the south east can look forward to a largely sunny weekend with temperatures rising to around 20 degrees over the coming days.
In its latest forecast, Met Éireann said it will get ‘cooler and a little fresher’ next week before returning to settled conditions next weekend.
The national forecaster said it will be generally cloudy today with scattered showers, a few heavy, but these will be mostly in in east Ulster and north Leinster. Met Éireann said: “The best of the limited sunny spells will be in southern and eastern coastal counties. Highest temperatures of 17 to 21 degrees, in light to moderate west to northwest winds.”
Met Éireann said tomorrow will bring a mixture of sunny spells and some scattered patchy showers, but these will be mostly over Ulster and Atlantic coastal counties, with highest temperatures of 16 to 20 degrees.
Sunday will also enjoy sunny spells, but cloud will increase at times during the day, bringing the chance of patchy mist and drizzle at times. Met Éireann added: “Feeling autumnal, in light variable breezes, with highest temperatures of 15 to 19 degrees. On Sunday night there will be good clear spells however there will be some low cloud at times leading to some patchy drizzle. Overnight lows of 8 to 13 degrees, mist and fog patches developing also in light east to southeast breezes.”
More sunny spells are forecast for Monday. Some showers may develop in the middle of the day, but these will mostly be in the west, with highest temperatures rising to up to 20 degrees.
Current indications suggest it the weather will become more unsettled from Tuesday onwards, with “rain and showers at times and highs in the mid to high teens”, accroding to Met Éireann.
