CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Monday, July 13, 2020

A cold front that moved through Southern Idaho on Sunday will keep temperatures slightly below average for Tuesday, but more seasonable (meaning warmer!) temperatures will be returning!

More often than not, the next seven days are going to see sunny to mostly sunny, or clear to mostly clear skies. This will generally be due to high pressure that will be nearby, and will keep humidity, or moisture levels, rather low. When high pressure is nearby, it allows temperatures to rise rather quickly, and also allows them to fall quickly once the sun is setting. That shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise, though, as the majority of Southern Idaho is looked at as being in the high desert!

Tuesday’s weather will mirror that of Monday, in that plenty of sunshine and comfortable temperatures are expected. Temperatures will gain about 5° from Tuesday to Wednesday due to developing high pressure, and do the same thing again from Wednesday to Thursday. By that point, expect to see temperatures level-off, but, they will be near average. This means that the Mini-Cassia Region and the Magic Valley will reach the lower 90s, while the Wood River Valley will be in the middle 80s (which is actually slightly above average).

Sustained winds are expected to be on the somewhat breezy side more often than not over the next week. Right, now, I think that Friday will feature the strongest winds during this period (15-25 mph sustained), but Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday all look to be on the somewhat breezier side of things (sustained winds in the 5-20 mph range). You can argue that the breezy weather is going to be the most noticeable thing over the next week.

The chances of precipitation over the next seven days continue to look quite low. There may be a stray shower from Thursday-Sunday, but as a whole, likely over 95% of Southern Idaho is going to stay dry through the next week.

Enjoy the slightly cooler conditions while they are around! Those 90s and breezy weather are going to be back before you know it!!
