Prolonged sunshine at last
The weather looks mainly dry for the next seven days and "possibly longer", according to Carlow forecaster Alan O'Reilly.
He said: "f you have been hoping for some rainfall to get things growing or flowing? Well you better hope you catch some of the heavier stuff on Wednesday because after that it looks mainly dry for next 7 days and possibly longer!"
According to www.carlowweather.com, Wednesday is expected to be a cloudy and dull day with some light drizzle but also some heavy showers at times. Staying warm and humid though.
