Covid-19 Covid-19 Covid-19

Temps of 17C expected this week

The weather will be a little cooler on Monday and Tuesday but temperatures are expected to soar later in the week, according to www.carlowweather.com.

The mercury will rise back up to 15C on Wednesday - which is balmy enough for this time of year. 

But the real treat will come when the temperature rises to 16C for the rest of the week, according to weatherman, Alan O'Reilly.

However, the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions remain in place so please do all you can and stay at home and safe lives.

Tuesday will be a bright day with good sunny spells in most areas. It will be milder with highest temperatures of 11 to 15 degrees, coolest in the west and warmest in northeast Leinster. Winds will be moderate to fresh southerly.
