Southern Idaho Weather Forecast
CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE
Thursday, July 09, 2020
Aside from it being breezy, and Saturday being the hottest day of 2020 (so far, at least!), generally quiet weather is expected over the next seven days.
High pressure to the southeast is going to keep the weather pretty warm over the next few days, and as noted, Saturday is going to be a hot afternoon. Temperatures on that given day are expected to range from the upper 80s in the Wood River Valley to the upper 90s in the Magic Valley. That means that temps will be about 5-10° above average, but not exactly record setting. In order for that to happen, pretty much all towns and cities would need to gain another 5° or so.
Prior to that, of course, is Friday! That weather will be somewhat similar to that of Thursday, as temperatures will climb themselves into the 80s (upper 80s in the MV/MCR, lower 80s in the WRV), but a breeze will start to pick-up. You will start to notice that breeze overnight Thursday into Friday. The winds won’t be too insane, as 5-20 mph sustained winds are expected for most.
Jumping ahead to Sunday (since Saturday was already discussed), temperatures will fall back about 10° compared to what they are expected to be for Sunday. This will be due to a cold front swinging through Southern Idaho. Not only will it knock temps back a bit, but it will also enhance winds to the 10-30 mph range. This given cold front does not look to have any showers or storms within it. The lack of rain is actually expected over the next week, as I really don’t anticipate any shower activity. The ‘best’ chance of a shower or two may be late next Thursday, but that is a week out.
For the beginning and middle of next week, plenty of sunshine with slightly below average temperatures are expected. The breezy weather is going to hang around Southern Idaho, as sustained winds look to be in the 10-25 mph range for Monday, Tuesday and potentially Wednesday. As the wind does start to fall off heading into Wednesday, temperatures will start to climb back up. By the time next Thursday rolls around, temps will be back to near average values.
If you are looking for some rain over the next week, it appears that you are out of luck! Temps will stay nice and warm over the next seven days (albeit, most days slightly below average), but be prepared for breezy weather!
