KMVT Weather Forecast
CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE
Tuesday, July 7th, 2020
A cold front passed through Southern Idaho on Tuesday morning, and resulted in some cooler temperatures around the region. While below average temperatures are expected for Wednesday as well, warmer weather will be back before you know it!
Plenty of sunshine is expected for ‘Hump Day’, but there will continue to be a lingering breeze generally out of the west. Sustained winds will be down a little bit compared to that of Monday, as generally, 5-20 mph winds are in the forecast for Wednesday. The breeze will diminish through the evening hours, and allow for some ‘Idaho Standard’ winds on Thursday.
Speaking of Thursday, temperatures, as noted above, will be back to near average (meaning with 5°) values. This means that the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region will see highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s, and low temperatures in the upper 50s. For the Wood River Valley, temperatures will be in the lower 80s for highs, while overnight lows are expected to be in the lower to middle 50s (which is 5-10° above average). Mostly sunny skies are expected as well, but a stray shower/storm or two is possible within the Wood River Valley on Thursday evening.
As far as Friday goes, breezy weather will be returning, but temperatures will continue to stay near average under mainly sunny skies. Saturday looks to be the hottest day of the next week, and could end up being the hottest day of 2020 so far. For that to happen, the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region will need to top-off in the middle 90s, while the Wood River Valley will need to reach the upper 80s. Both of these things do look to be a good possibility, and partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies are expected.
Another weak cold front is expected to swing through Southern Idaho for Sunday, which will knock temperatures back to near average values. Breezy weather is also expected to return as well, but this given front looks to have mainly dry weather within it. Temps will fall back another few degrees for both Monday and Tuesday, but yet again, mostly sunny skies are expected. It is possible that next Tuesday could be a breezier day as well, but that is also a week out, and many things can (and will!) change between now-and-then.
If you are a fan of warm/hot temperatures, you are going to be in luck more often than not over the next week! You probably won’t be a big fan of the breezy weather that is possible/expected for every other day within the forecast (meaning Wednesday, Friday, Sunday and Tuesday).
For those of you that are farmers, or even just have some flower pots outside, be aware that the majority of Southern Idaho is likely going to stay dry over the next week, and even potentially the next few days beyond that. We are about to enter the ‘dog days of summer’!!
