CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Monday, August 03, 2020

A few cold fronts are expected to move through Southern Idaho over the next week, and that will result in much more tolerable temperatures than what we’ve experienced lately.

The first of those cold fronts moved through the region on Monday, and that is why it what pretty breezy/windy throughout the day. This is going to knock temperatures back to near average values for Tuesday, but a lingering breeze is expected.

Temperatures won’t be near average for long, as they will warm back-up for Wednesday, thanks to developing high pressure. A second cold front is expected to pass through Southern Idaho on Thursday, but before that does arrive, slight chances of rain showers and thunderstorms are expected for parts of Southern Idaho on Wednesday afternoon/evening. Thursday holds a slightly better chance of showers for the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region, but I do expect the majority of Southern Idaho to stay dry throughout the work week.

Since this is a cold front, temperatures are expected to have a decrease within them. From Wednesday to Thursday, and then again Thursday to Friday, temperatures will drop 3-5° each day. This means that by Friday, temperatures are going to be a few degrees below average. Generally dry weather is expected for Friday, but a slight chance of a rain shower and/or a thunderstorm will be possible within the Wood River Valley.

The second full weekend in August looks to feature some great weather, as temps will be near average under mostly sunny skies. It really can’t cooperate much better than what is within the forecast at this point! There might be a slight breeze around, but it doesn’t look too overwhelming.

Early next week will start to see a slow climb upward with temperatures, but nothing too crazy. A slight chance of showers is also within the forecast for Monday in the Wood River Valley.

Average temperatures are starting to (VERY slowly) fall again, meaning we’ve reached the pinnacle of the summer heat. Keep in mind, this is an AVERAGE, and doesn’t mean we still can’t get hot, but those of you that enjoy cooler temps can at least hold you head up high knowing that! Temperatures over the next week won’t be as warm as the past seven days, but you warm weather fans still have some nice weather ahead! Keep cool, and keep your fingers crossed that we get a little bit more rain soon! It has been pretty dry lately!
