CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Monday, August 10, 2020

Another red flag or fire weather warning has been issued for portions of Southern Idaho for Tuesday. With the potential of lightning possible in the forecast, as well as low humidity values, overall dry conditions over the past few weeks and breezy weather, the ability for fires to spread quickly will be there. Do your best to prevent fires from igniting over the next few days, as Mother Nature is going to be working against us as it is anyway! An incoming cold front will deliver the best chance of showers and storms to Southern Idaho on Tuesday and Wednesday, but even then, the chances aren’t too great.

Temperatures do look to warm-up a little bit ahead of this cold front on Tuesday, but clouds are expected to develop throughout the afternoon and evening hours as well. As noted, some showers are going to be possible during the afternoon and evening hours, but I anticipate the vast majority of Southern Idaho to stay dry. The biggest thing to likely note with this cold front is going to be the breezy conditions that are expected all throughout the work week.

This cold front is not going to drop temperatures all that significantly, as high and low temperatures will likely only drop 3-5° from Tuesday afternoon/Wednesday morning to Wednesday afternoon/Thursday morning. Basically, Southern Idaho is going to go from slightly above average values to slightly below average values.

After Wednesday comes to a completion, dry weather conditions are expected from Thursday-Sunday. Breezy weather will start to pick-up, as sustained winds will likely be in the 10-25 mph for the majority of Southern Idaho, but start to taper off a little bit for the weekend.

Speaking of the weekend, temperatures are going to start to warm back up to above average values. This means lower to middle 90s for the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region, while the Wood River Valley can expect middle to upper 80s. A ridge, or an area of high pressure, building into the region will be what is responsible for the warmer temperatures.

Those warm temperatures are expected to continue into early next week, and Southern Idaho will continue to see a fair amount of sunshine for most areas.

As previously noted, try to prevent fires from starting over the next few days! Those of you that are warm weather fans will be happy campers for the weekend and early next week!
