CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Thursday, August 06, 2020

A cold front is going to bring in some temperatures that won’t be as warm as what Southern Idaho has seen over the past few days.

Temperatures on Wednesday for highs will be 5-10° below average for much of the region, which means a lot of lower 80s are expected. It will be a little bit breezy (thanks to the cold front), but mainly sunny skies are expected as well. A few of those clouds could have showers/storms within them, but the majority of Southern Idaho is going to have some spectacular weather to end the work week!

As far as the weekend goes, plenty of sunshine and comfortable temperatures (for early August standards!) are expected. Temperatures will be back into the middle and upper 80s for the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region, while middle to lower 80s are expected for the Wood River Valley. It will remain dry, and only a little bit of a breeze (we can call it Idaho standard winds) are expected.

Early next week will continue the trend of quieter weather. Mostly sunny skies and near average temperatures will start the work week off, but a few extra clouds for both Tuesday and Wednesday could spark off a few showers and storms. This is only a slight chance, so it isn’t anything too over-the-top. A little bit of a breeze is expected as well, as the next cold front will start to approach us. This won’t drop temperatures quite as much as what we saw during the current week, but will knock temps from the lower 90s in the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region to the upper 80s. Expect the Wood River Valley to stay in the middle 80s.

As a whole, pretty typical weather for the beginning of August is expected over the next week. Temperatures will be pretty close to average, and only small chances of showers and storms are expected. Enjoy what will be a really nice weekend around Southern Idaho!
