CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Sunday, July 26, 2020

There is a red flag watch and/or a red flag warning in place for the majority of Southern Idaho for either Monday or Tuesday. It had been pretty dry around the area over the past few weeks, and the combination of that, low humidity values, a little bit of a breeze and some lightning could/would allow fires to start and spread quickly. Try your best to prevent man-made fires from starting up, because Mother Nature won’t be working in our favor!

While warm weather is going to dominate the next seven days more often than not, there is a cold front that is expected to slice through Southern Idaho on Tuesday. A slight chance of a rain shower and/or a thunderstorm is going to be possible for Monday afternoon and evening. Afternoon temperatures for Monday are going to be rather hot, and that is going to allow for those storms to happen. Generally speaking, the higher elevation locations of Southern Idaho have the best chance of seeing the rain, but some of those may reach the valleys.

The cold front that is going to move through Southern Idaho on Tuesday is going to enhance the chances of showers and storms. These will happen more often than not during the afternoon and evening hours, and could have some moderate-to-heavy rain within them. That cold front is going to help keep temperatures down for a day, but hot weather is going to be back for Wednesday-onward.

Middle 90s are within the forecast for the Magic Valley and the Mini-Cassia Region for Wednesday through Friday, while the Wood River Valley will approach the 90° mark on those days as well. Mostly sunny skies are expected more often than not between now and then.

Another cold front is going to move through Southern Idaho for the weekend, in which temperatures will drop a few degrees. This looks to be a mainly dry cold front (at this point, at least!).

Winds don’t look to be too crazy over the next week, as 5-15 mph winds are in the forecast more often than not.

Keep cool out there! The showers on Tuesday will be nice, but hopefully there isn’t much lightning to control the fire danger out there!
