Happy Friday Idaho! Temperatures continue to heat up this afternoon with high temps in the mid 90s along with light winds and plentiful sunshine. Tonight is also the first full moon of summer, known as the "strawberry moon." It will reach peak illumination at 7:51pm M.T. and clear skies are expected in southwest Idaho.

If you have outdoor plans this weekend, maybe Meridian Dairy Days, or boating Lucky Peak, whatever you have planned be sure to include a lot of water as valley temperatures will come close to 100° both days. If you have plans to go to "Rattle in The Canyon" in Riggins it will be just as hot but temperatures will cool nicely during the evening in the park. Meridian Dairy Days is going on the weekend as well so please drink lots of water!

A sneak peak ahead to July 4th shows that chance of hot weather with thunderstorms possible but the weather pattern continues to be erratic so what looks like very hot weather now could change to the opposite. Stay connected right here for updates my long range forecast.
