Lots of sunshine and much warmer afternoon temperatures have dominated your Tuesday as highs hit the low to mid-70s in the valley. Clouds will be on the increase overnight helping to make it a very mild overnight with a Wednesday morning low only dropping to near 50°

Wednesday, will be much cloudier to start with a slight chance of a morning sprinkle then the clouds will break and temperatures will soar to around 76° in the valley. However, isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible mainly for southern areas around Owyhee County and near the Nevada Border. At times wind gusts for these areas may be up to 40 mph.

On Thursday, I expect the wind to increase as a cold front moves through. Temps could touch 70° before the front brings windy & cooler conditions across the valley. Winds could gust over 30 mph. I am forecasting a partly cloudy sky and no rain until just before midnight. A period of rain is likely overnight.

That trough of low pressure will move through on Friday bringing low to mid-60s for highs in the valley along with a chance of early morning rain then a mix of clouds & sun and the chance of a shower or two in the valley while showers continue in the mountains. Expect a breezy & cooler day.

Saturday is still looking breezy with temperatures in the mid-60s. There should be a partly cloudy sky and no rain for the valley but on Sunday while the wind should settle down there is a slight chance of a shower late in the day and showers may be more likely in the central mountains.
