CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Thursday, July 16, 2020

There is a red flag/fire weather warning out for portions of Jerome, Lincoln and Blaine Counties as well as all of Minidoka Counties for Friday, July 17th, from 1 PM to 9 PM. This has been issued due to the anticipation of low humidity values, breezy weather and a lack of rain recently. Avoid traveling through these areas during that time, as fires can start and spread quickly!!

The summer sizzle is in the process of taking Southern Idaho over as the back-half of July continues onward!!

High pressure to the northeast of the region is going to allow for generally quiet weather over the next week. Temperatures are going to be slightly above average more often than not, and it looks like the middle of next week is going to start the warmest stretch that Southern Idaho has seen in a bit.

Temperatures in the middle 90s for the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region aren’t uncommon, but we haven’t seen them consistently for a while. As noted, next week is going to start the trend of seeing those values more often, and even the Wood River Valley will have the opportunity to reach 90° next week.

As far as sky conditions go, mostly sunny to sunny skies are expected through Tuesday. Once Wednesday and Thursday come about, a few extra clouds do look to be around Southern Idaho. This could result in a couple of showers and/or thunderstorms, and because of that, there is a slight chance of a shower/storm for both of those given days. The best chance of showers/storms will be in the higher elevation locations. It is worthwhile to note as well that the South Hills of Cassia and Twin Falls Counties could see a stray shower for Friday afternoon/evening.

Breezy weather is going to dominate the weather in Southern Idaho for Friday and Saturday, and linger through Sunday and Monday. Friday looks to be the breeziest day, as sustained winds look to be in the 10-25 mph range, The winds will be a touch less than that on Saturday, and slightly lower again for Sunday and Monday.

If you enjoy the dog days of summer temperature wise, you are going to enjoy the next few days (and potentially weeks!). The warmest part of the entire year is ahead of us, and the temperatures reflect that!
