CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Tuesday, August 04, 2020

An area of high pressure is going to give Southern Idaho a warming pattern for Wednesday, but a weak cold front is expected to knock temperatures down a little bit to end the week.

This high pressure is going to bring temperatures a few degrees above average for Wednesday. Middle 90s are going to be possible for the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region, while the Wood River Valley is expected to warm-up into the upper 80s. As Wednesday starts to come to a close, the previously mentioned cold front is going to move through Southern Idaho. That cold front will have some moisture within it, and spark off some showers and storms in the higher elevation locations for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I really don’t expect very much of Southern Idaho to get in on the rain action, but the slight chance is there for showers and storms to develop.

With this being a cold front, temperatures are going to fall a little bit. Thursday, Friday and Saturday will see the return of middle and upper 80s for the Mini-Cassia Region and Magic Valley, while the middle 80s can be expected for the Wood River Valley. As a whole, the upcoming weekend looks to be one of the nicest we’ve seen in a little bit! Temperatures will be pretty comfortable (for August standards), rain chances will be low (if not, non-existent) and it will only be a little bit breezy.

Sunshine filled skies and a little bit warmer of temperatures will be returning to the region for the beginning of next week. It does appear that the chance of showers will be on the increase for Tuesday, but, that is of course a long ways out.

Overall, some nice weather is expected in Southern Idaho over the next week. Temperatures will be within 5° of average more often than not for both highs and lows. The chance of showers and storms will stay pretty low, and no one day looks to be significantly breezy. Try to take advantage of some decent weather!
