WEATHER FORECAST: See what’s in store for Kilkenny this weekend
After the week we’ve just had, it would have been nice to expect some let up in the miserable weather. But, alas, this is Ireland, and in the dark end of November. And, rather predictably, our national forecaster has predicted there’ll be no let up in the conditions that had us scampering indoors over the past few days.
Kilkenny and the rest of the south east will, unfortunately, experience more rainfall over the weekend, with possible spot flooding in parts.
Tonight will be mostly cloudy, with persistent rain developing in the east later in the eveninf. The rain will become widespread for a time and will be heaviest in Leinster with a risk of spot flooding and lowest temperatures of between 1 to 5 degrees.
Tomorrow will be also be mostly cloudy with outbreaks of showery rain, which will be heaviest over the eastern half of the country.
Met Éireann said: “Amounts will be smaller further west with some bright or sunny intervals. Highest temperatures of 7 to 9 degrees with moderate northeast breezes. On Saturday night, rain and drizzle will become light and patchy. Lowest temperatures of 2 to 6 degrees.”
Sunday will continue cloudy with dry intervals and some patchy rain in the morning. Through the afternoon and evening, persistent rain will spread from the south and will extend to all areas on Sunday night. It will be heavy in many areas. Highest temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees with moderate easterly breezes.
Monday will, again, be mostly cloudy with further outbreaks of rain, with highest temperatures ofbetween 8 to 10 degrees.
