If you have plans for the long holiday weekend, here is what you can expect

Posted at 3:48 AM, May 22, 2024

Rain overnight and early this morning dropped .20" to .40" across the valley and a cold front crossing the valley midday Wednesday is triggered thunderstorms with locally gusty wind briefly to 50 mph, heavy downpours, and pea-size hail. Isolated showers will stick around Wednesday evening and then fade away overnight.

Snow will fall overnight down to 4500 feet and 1" of snow is possible in McCall through Thursday morning. Elevations above 6500 feet could see 2"-4" with 4"-8" above 7500 feet.

Cool conditions will linger into Thursday with a high temp climbing slightly into the low to mid-60s. It will be mostly sunny with a cool breeze.

Friday is my pick day of the week! I expect sunshine, light wind, and a high temperature in the mid-70s. That's very close to normal. A perfect day for outdoor activities!

Another system moves in on Saturday will temperatures cooling back slightly into the upper-60s with a partly cloudy sky, a cool breeze, and there is a slight chance of showers. In the McCall area and other central mountain locations around 5000 feet, you can expect rain showers developing otherwise mostly cloudy and quite cool with a high temp of only 50°. This will make for a chilly and not very comfortable day for camping.

Sunday is looking pretty nice in the valley with the temperature right around 70° along with sunshine and lighter wind. The McCall area will only warm to the mid-50s but sunshine should be on the increase. Low temperatures will drop to 30° Friday morning, 36° Saturday morning, 28° Sunday morning, and 34° Monday morning.

Monday will be warmer for all areas with sunshine and pleasant conditions. Boise will hit 80° and McCall 66° for afternoon high temperatures.
