A cold front swept through southern Idaho on Friday, bringing a blast of cooler and blustery weather. Areas east of Boise experienced frequent gusts exceeding 40mph. As we move through Friday evening, the strong winds will gradually subside, giving way to a chilly night with temperatures dipping into the upper 30s and lower 40s in the lower valleys and upper 20s and lower 30s in the mountains.

However, Saturday is shaping up to be an exceptional day, with sunny skies, warming temperatures, and lighter winds. High temperatures will reach the mid 70s in the lower valleys and low to mid 60s in the mountains. But don't get too comfortable, as another cold front is expected to move through the area Saturday night, bringing breezy conditions once again. There's a slight chance of scattered showers in the mountains, but it will remain dry elsewhere.

As we head into Sunday, temperatures will drop to around 10 degrees below normal. The forecast for next week is looking active, with numerous disturbances expected to bring cool temperatures, breezy conditions, and increasing shower chances to the region.
