Happy November! October ended on a pleasant note with seasonable temperatures and dry conditions. October as a whole was around 3° warmer than normal in Boise. As we kick off November, mild temperatures and an active weather pattern will return.

Air Stagnation Advisory

Light wind and little mixing of air may lead to the buildup of pollutants and diminished air quality for parts of southwestern Idaho, including the Treasure and Magic valleys. An Air Stagnation Advisory is in effect until Thursday at 6:00 AM.

Overnight temperatures won't be as chilly for the remainder of the week, only dipping into the upper 30s and lower 40s. By the weekend, temperatures climb above normal topping out around 60° in the Treasure Valley and upper 40s and lower 50s across the higher terrain.

A series of disturbances coming from the Pacific will spread precipitation into Idaho. Rain develops late Thursday afternoon with the heaviest rain developing in the evening lasting into the overnight for the Treasure Valley. The mild Pacific air will keep snow levels fairly high this time around at around 7500-8000 feet.

Right now I am thinking Friday in the valley will turn out to be a decent day with some sunshine, light wind and temperatures near 60°. Lingering showers are possible in the mountains.

The next storm arrives on Saturday with a soaking rainfall likely into Saturday night. Rain totals of 0.25-0.75" for the Treasure and Magic valleys and upwards of 1" or more of rain for the central mountains.

This weekend Daylight Saving Time comes to an end at 2:00 AM on Sunday, so make sure to set the clocks back an hour before heading off to bed on Saturday. Enjoy those later sunsets this week, on Sunday the sun will set around 5:30 PM!
