CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Wednesday, July 22, 2020

There is a fire weather warning, or a red flag warning, in place for parts of Southern Idaho for Thursday. With low humidity values, some breezy conditions, overall dry weather over the past few weeks, and the potential of lightning, any fire that is able to start will have the ability to spread easily and quickly. Let’s keep the fire danger down in Southern Idaho this season!

More afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms are going to be within Southern Idaho over the next couple of days, but the overall coverage (meaning the number of towns/cities within the area) of rain/storms will be a little bit less.

There is some monsoonal moisture in Northern Nevada that is coming together with a stationary front off to the northwest that have resulted in the additional cloud coverage and shower activity within Southern Idaho. This overall weather pattern will hang around into Thursday, but start to depart as Friday comes about.

Specifically for Thursday, as noted above, it won’t be quite as wet as Thursday. There still will be some shower and thunderstorm activity around for the day, but it won’t be quite as frequent or much as Wednesday. Stronger winds, lightning and brief periods of moderate-to-heavy rain are possible for Thursday (and even Friday as well).

As these storms systems start to fall apart, and move away from Southern Idaho, nicer weather will be returning in time for the weekend. Temperatures will be running near average, and more sunshine is expected to return as well.

For the last few days of July, some stray showers/storms may pop-up, but really, the overall chance of rain after Friday comes to a completion will be pretty low. Temperatures do look like they will be on a warming trend by the middle and end of next week. That literally is the pinnacle of average temperatures through the course of the calendar year, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise!

Be aware of the lightning and showers around Southern Idaho for Thursday and Friday! The weather will be a bit better for the weekend, so you have something to look forward to within that!
