Powerful thunderstorms signal a break in our heat. What comes next?

Posted at 3:22 PM, May 21, 2023

Wind gusts over 50 mph Sunday evening caused thousands of power outages across southwest Idaho.

There have been numerous reports of trees down in Canyon County along with up to 2000 losing power. Strong storms will continue into the predawn hours of Monday for eastern Oregon and the West Central Mountains of Idaho

The temperature in Boise dropped from 86 to 72 in just twenty minutes as an outflow boundary (gust front) blew across the Boise area.

A cold front will cross the area early Monday morning with gusts to 35 mph possible in the valley then expect a nice, sunny, breezy afternoon with temperatures in the mid-70s!
