Afternoon conditions and temperatures at Kilkenny from Mon Aug 22nd:

21° 18° 21° 21° 20° 20° 17° 20°
Mixed weather this week. Unsettled at first but improving as the week goes on. Mild and close on Monday with some outbreaks of rain. Wet start to Tuesday but it will dry out and turn cooler. Not a bad day for Wednesday - dry with some pleasant sunshine. Holding dry for Thursday too with some sunshine. Just the chance of a light shower for Friday but also some sunny spells. Saturday should hold dry too but outbreaks of rain will develop on Sunday. After a dry start to next week it looks like SW winds will bring more rain in on Tuesday. Worth noting too that there is a tropical storm called Gaston making slow progress up the Atlantic and it may threaten our weather over the All-Ireland weekend. But more on that later.
