CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Monday, July 27, 2020

There is a red flag warning in place for the majority of Southern Idaho for 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!

The chance of showers and thunderstorms is going to hang around Southern Idaho for Tuesday before drier and warmer weather returns.

A cold front from the northwest, as well as moisture from Northern Nevada is going to come together over the region yet again for Tuesday. This will result in the best chance of showers and thunderstorms that Southern Idaho will see over the next week. Of course, the higher elevation terrain (and specifically the Sawtooth/Central Mountains, as oppose to the South Hills) have the best chance to see the thunderstorm activity for Tuesday. This comes off of seeing more showers and storms in the region on Monday.

Within these storms, it wouldn’t be surprising to see some 50+ mph winds, some small hail, lightning/thunder, and moderate-to-heavy rain. I anticipate the wind threat and lightning to be the biggest potential issues for most of the area.

The moisture and cold front are going to swing off to the east, and result in some quieter weather throughout the rest of the week. There may be a stray shower/storm or two within the Wood River Valley on Wednesday and Thursday, but most of Southern Idaho will stay dry.

Temperatures may end up being the warmest that we’ve seen so far in 2020 on Friday, as some middle to upper 90s are going to be possible for the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region, while the Wood River Valley will be in the lower 90s. You will want to make sure that you take it slow, drink plenty of water, and take frequent breaks if you plan on being outdoors really from Thursday through the middle of next week.

Stay safe with the rain showers and thunderstorms that are in the forecast through Thursday evening, and keep cool beyond that! This is literally (on average) the warmest time of the year, and temperatures (as far as averages go) will be on the decline by the middle of next week!
