CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Wednesday, January 13, 2021

While overnight Wednesday into Thursday will be breezy, overall nice weather is expected to be in Southern Idaho on Thursday and Friday.

Temperatures are expected to be a few degrees above average to end the week under mostly to partly sunny skies. Clouds will attempt to thicken up as Friday evolves, but even then, the weather should be pretty cooperative. A slight chance of showers is possible overnight Friday into Saturday, but even then, I do not anticipate anything too crazy happening with the weather to get the weekend going.

That slight chance of showers really shouldn’t prevent you from anything you may need to accomplish this weekend. I’d argue that Saturday is the nicer day of the weekend, as Sunday does appear to be on the breezier side of things. It is possible that Sunday ends up being as breezy as what Wednesday was, but I don’t think that is a given at this point. The breezy conditions will be due to an incoming cold front, but this should not drop our temperatures very much at all. There are still a few days between now-and-then that the forecast can (and will) change.

Event as the beginning of next week develops, only a slight chance of showers is within the forecast for Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday. Temperatures will continue to be at near average values, so it isn’t like it will become significantly colder or warmer. As the middle of next week does develop, there could be another cold front that slides through Southern Idaho and drops temperatures a little bit yet again, but even then, it should not be anything too crazy.

If you are someone who enjoys the warmer temperatures, I’ll give you a glass half-full thought…. While they are rising VERY slowly, the average temperatures are starting to climb back up, so we’ve reached the basement of temperatures (at least, with respect to average!).

Try to enjoy the next couple days of weather if you are able to! They should feature some pretty nice and fair weather!
