Posted at 5:27 AM, Jun 25, 2024

Sizzling temperatures have returned with some valley high temps touch 100° Tuesday afternoon.

Clouds will be on the increase and stick around Wednesday morning and that will keep it warm with a morning low above 70°! An approaching disturbance will bring some thunderstorms as the sun comes up and could continue into late morning. There is a chance of wind gusts up to 50 mph or better with these rare overnight/morning storms. Expect partial clearing and quite hot in the afternoon with a high around 96°.

A cold front passes through Wednesday night ushering in refreshing relief from the heat.

Thursday: After a cold frontal passage Wednesday night, relief is finally on the horizon! It'll still be sunny but much cooler with a high near 8° which is only a few degrees below normal. It’s the perfect day to get outside and enjoy the more comfortable temperatures. The Boise River is open for floating but cooler temperatures and breezy conditions will make it a bit cool on the water.

Friday: Expect sunny and spectacular weather with a high near 84°. It’s a great day to play a round of golf with the cooler temperatures!

This Weekend: The heat makes a comeback on Saturday as highs rise rapidly back into the mid-90s with morning sunshine and some evening clouds. Sunday may have some clouds in the morning with a chance of some showers in the central mountains then clearing and cooler with highs only in the upper 80s. Whether you’re hiking, biking, or just relaxing outside, make sure to stay cool and hydrated.

And a sneak peak at Thursday the fourth of July shows temperatures in the low to mid 90s in the valley and 80°-83° in the central mountains around 5000 ft which includes Long Valley.
