Southern Idaho Weather Forecast
CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE
Wednesday, July 08, 2020
Warmer temperatures are on the way to Southern Idaho as high pressure build in to our southeast.
The combination of time and the position of that high pressure will bring the heat back to Southern Idaho. I say time, as the further away we get from the cold front passage that happen on Tuesday, the quicker temperatures are able to rebound to near average values. This looks to be the case for both Thursday and Friday, as a lot of Southern Idaho will be in the 80s with some lower 90s mixed in as well. Friday will see some breezy weather returning, as sustained winds will be from 10-25 mph.
Saturday is going to be the warmest day of 2020, as 90s are really going to engulf Southern Idaho. Some triple digit numbers won’t be out of the question for areas like Hagerman, Bliss, Gooding and Wendell. Of course, this is a day that you will want to make sure you drink plenty of water and keep yourself cool as a whole!!!
A cold front is going to swing through the area for Sunday, and that is going to knock temps back a bit. Breezy weather is also going to return to Southern Idaho, and that is going to linger through the beginning of the week as well. If you are able to tolerate the breezy weather for Sunday through Wednesday, you will enjoy the comfortable temperatures as well!
As far as rain chances go, a stray shower or two will be possible for Thursday within the higher elevation terrain. I do expect that at least 95% of Southern Idaho will stay dry, not only for Thursday, but potentially through the end of next week as well.
Since rain chances will be low, that typically means that there won’t be much in the way of cloud coverage around. This is going to be the case, as mostly sunny to sunny skies will be in Southern Idaho much more often than not, and will result in mainly clear skies during the overnight hours.
As a whole, quiet weather is expected in Southern Idaho over the next week! Aside from the well above average temps on Saturday, the rest of the forecast isn’t too out of the ordinary for July!
