CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE

Thursday, March 04, 2021

The warmest day of 2021 is knocking on the door of Southern Idaho, as well above average temperatures are expected for Friday!

Temperatures throughout the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region will top-off in the lower to middle 60s for the last day of the work week under mostly sunny skies. There is going to be a bit of a breeze around Southern Idaho for most of the day, as sustained winds are expected to be between 5-20 mph. Those winds will also be helping those temperatures climb, so at least there is a benefit to them!

Saturday is going to start off nice (but breezy), although more clouds are going to be in the area than that of the days before it. This will be due to a cold front swinging itself through Southern Idaho. Isolated rain and/or snow showers are going to be apart of this given front, but it is not going to be a very significant precipitation front. I’d argue that the winds will be the ‘worst’ thing out of it, followed by the temperature drop and then the showers. Snow levels will start off relatively high (6,500′), and drop through the night. Most areas that see snow will likely see less than 3″ of total snow accumulation, and I really do not expect accumulating snow for most of the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region.

Sunday should be dry and overall fair, for the most part. Showers will likely be out of Southern Idaho by about 8 AM, which should allow for a pretty nice day! Temperatures will drop a bit, but even then, they will still be slightly above average. This will also likely be the sunniest day that Southern Idaho could end up seeing for a little bit.

An area of low pressure off the West Coast of the United States is going to fling moisture into the Western United States through next work week. This means that there is going to be a fair amount of cloud coverage around, which will limit temperatures. To go along with the clouds, mountain snow and valley rain is expected for the region, with Tuesday holding the best chance of showers next week. Per usual, there is expected to be at least a little bit of a breezy around on most days, with Tuesday being the windiest day next week. Of course, many things can (and will) change between now-and-then, so stay tuned to the forecast!

We’ve been spoiled with some really nice weather through the work week, and while it will be coming to an end for a little bit, at least it is now March! Temperatures, on average, will continue to climb which mean that the dog days of Winter are behind us!
