CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020

While Wednesday will have above average temperatures by 10-15°, temperatures do look to be a little bit cooler than that in the days following.

A cold front will be moving through Southern Idaho on Thursday morning, and allow temperatures to fall back to near average values for Thursday. This cold front is also going to bring some showers to the region, in which the higher elevation terrain will have a better chance of showers and storms than that of the valleys. I do think that there could be some thunderstorm activity on Wednesday, as the daytime heating could allow for some thunderstorms to happen. IF this does happen, some of those storms could be on the stronger to severe side, as stronger winds are a possibility. Nonetheless, Thursday features an actual higher chance of showers and storms, thanks to the actual front passing by.

Breezy weather is also going to be within Southern Idaho for the last two days of the week, and into the weekend as well as Monday. This will be due to the first cold front moving through the area, and then an even stronger cold front is expected to move through over the weekend. Sustained winds will likely be in the 10-25 mph range from the late morning to early evening hours of Thursday through Monday.

As far as the second cold front goes, there is still a fair amount of disagreement as to when it will plow itself through Southern Idaho. This is critical, as the timing of it will of course determine temperatures over the weekend. Saturday does look to be the much warmer day of the two weekend days, and it is possible that the different in temperatures for highs from Saturday to Sunday could be over 20°! That means that the potential to go from temperatures about 5° above average to 15° below average is possible within a 24 hours span (if not, less).

Those below average temperatures are expected to linger through the beginning of the week, as the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region will likely see highs only in the lower 70s, while the Wood River Valley will be in the middle to lower 60s. I anticipate some shower and thunderstorm activity to be around for Monday and Tuesday, which will help keep temperatures down a little bit.

If you enjoy the warmth, take advantage of the temps over the next few days! If cooler temperatures are more your thing, I feel pretty confident that those temperatures/weather conditions will start to happen by Sunday/early next week!
