Summer will officially arrive with soaring temperatures

Posted at 4:23 AM, Jun 19, 2024

A perfect 10 out of 10 on my Scott Score on Wednesday with spectacular sunshine, light wind and comfortably warm temperatures.

Thursday is the Summer Solstice, arriving at 2:51pm, and hotter temperatures return right on cue. High Thursday will warm to around 90° with a little cloud cover increasing later in the day. I don't expect any showers even in the central mountains.

Friday is now looking a little bit hotter with temps in the low to possibly mid-90s and light wind.

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!
