CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE - Thursday, May 26, 2022

A series of disturbances rolling through Southern Idaho means that shower activity is at least a possibility through that of Tuesday.

There is going to be a cold front that will swing through Southern Idaho on Friday. This is going to knock temperatures back a bit for Memorial Day Weekend, as afternoon highs will be 10-20° below average. Those of you that are cool weather fans better enjoy the weekend and early week forecast as much as possible, because the days of seeing 50s and 60s for afternoon highs aren’t going to be around much longer as May comes to an end and June begins! Aside from it being cooler from Saturday through Tuesday, breezy conditions are expected as well, so it will feel even cooler than what the temperatures ultimately show. The good news about the cooler temperatures is that I do not anticipate it being cold enough for frost to be an issue, but there will be some snow mixing in with the rain within the higher elevation locations, especially on Sunday and Monday.

The day that holds the best chance of showers is Saturday, followed by Sunday and Monday. None of those days look to be a complete washout for any town or city, but the weather certainly isn’t going to be spectacular, especially with mostly cloudy skies in place. If you have any outdoor plans on those given days, I’d try to switch them to indoor plans, as the cool and breezy weather conditions alone will not be pleasant to contend with.

High pressure will develop over Southern Idaho as the middle of the work week develops. Temperatures will climb the ladder within the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region from the 60s to the 70s into the 80s from Tuesday through Thursday. The Wood River Valley will see that same general temperature climb as well, as 50s will turn into 60s which will turn into 70s from Tuesday into Wednesday and then into Thursday. More sunshine is expected to develop as well, which will allow for some drier weather conditions as well. For the time being, Wednesday looks to be the pick of the forecast over the next week, followed by Thursday.

Don’t worry, warm weather fans! You had a nice tease of very warm conditions on Thursday, and you know that those consistently warm temperatures will be back soon! Those of you that enjoy cooler temps better enjoy the long weekend!!
