Afternoon conditions and temperatures at Kilkenny from Mon Apr 24th :

12°   12° 14° 12° 14° 17°
A mixed bag of weather this week, turning more unsettled later. Cloudy on Monday with some scattered outbreaks of light rain for a time but this will clear off later to give a cold night with a slight frost. Tuesday will be bright and sunny at first but there will be showers later and some of these could be of hail. Very cold on Tuesday night with temperatures likely to drop below zero so gardeners take note. Bright start again for Wednesday but a few showers again in the afternoon. Less cold on Wednesday night. Thursday and Friday will be cool, pleasant days with nice sunshine. It will turn cloudier later on Friday. Saturday will be cloudy but not as wet as originally forecast, just some scattered outbreaks of light rain or drizzle. More general rain will extend up from the south west during Sunday. Clearing up late in the day.  A better day for Public Holiday Monday and it looks like temperatures will rise nicely by mid week.
