CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Sunday, July 19, 2020

Slightly above average temperatures are expected over the next few days thanks to nearby high pressure as well as plenty of sunshine and southwesterly winds in higher levels of the sky.

Temperatures for Monday will be in the upper 80s and lower 90s, and winds are expected to pick-up during the afternoon and evening hours. This looks to be the last breezier day that Southern Idaho will see for a little bit. That isn’t to say that Tuesday and Wednesday won’t be a little bit breezy, but I don’t think they’ll have winds that are able to clear 18+ mph.

A cold front is expected to move through Southern Idaho as the Wednesday/Thursday time frame comes about. This will result in some of the highest chances of showers that Southern Idaho has seen in a few weeks, so keep your fingers crossed that it happens! At this point, I anticipate Wednesday to have the best chance of showers/storms around the region, and the higher elevation locations will have quite a bit better of a chance than that of the valleys. Some showers and storms are going to linger around Southern Idaho into Thursday and Friday, as this cold front will stall out. When this happens, it is going to keep some moisture within the air, and of course, keep those rain chances up a little bit. The Wood River Valley could see some shower activity into the weekend as well.

Despite the cold front moving through Southern Idaho, temperatures are expected to not really fall all that much. Over the next seven days, Tuesday looks to be the day that features the warmest temperatures, but the ‘coolest day’ (which looks to be Friday) will still be within 5-8° of that of Tuesday. What I mean by this- our temperatures really aren’t going to move around much at all over the next seven days.

Keep your fingers crossed that we get some showers late this week! Those of you that are agriculture workers/farmers, or heck, even just have a flower pot in your yard need some showers! We haven’t seen anything over the past few weeks, and I’m cautiously optimistic we will get a little something.
