Afternoon conditions and temperatures at Kilkenny from Mon Mar 20th:

10° 11° 13° 13° 14° 13°
A big contrast this week with cold, showery conditions and plenty of frost by night. Some rain early Monday will clear and it will be  a bright cool day with some showers later. Tuesday will be a cold, blustery day with more showers and these could be of a wintry nature late in the day. There is still a risk of wintry showers overnight on Tuesday and with a hard frost this could make road conditions tricky first thing Wednesday. Bright then with one or two wintry showers followed by a hard frost. Thursday could well hold dry and bright but it will still be cold. A slight frost overnight will followed by a sunny day for Friday. More frost overnight but the weekend will be warm by day with  some nice spring sunshine. Continuing fair weather for the start of next week but a little rain is expected by mid week. It will be mild.
