Boise sizzled at 108° Wednesday
Posted at 3:31 AM, Jul 10, 2024

Boise has officially reached 108° for a record high.

Today is the hottest day of the week with temperatures across Valley floors approaching the all-time record (for Boise) of 111°. Peaking heating will occur between 5 pm and 6 pm. If you work outdoors continue to hydrate, wear plenty of sunscreen, and take A/C breaks when possible.

Boise has only reached 109° seven times in the last 84 years.

Southwest Idaho valleys are still under an Excessive Heat Warning due to these brutal temperatures. Remind yourself to not walk pets during peak heating hours, make sure to not leave children or animals in the car, and check on those around you who may not have access to an A/C.

Watches/Warnings

Thursday and Friday will not be much different with temps still near 106° to 109° across the valley and lots of hazy sunshine. Some late day clouds may pop up in the higher elevations

Smoke will continue to fill the air with this stagnant high pressure ridge in place so the sky will become more hazy. There is also a chance that thunderstorms will pop up late week.

Over the weekend our ridge of high pressure will be to our east allowing more moisture to rotate in from the southwest bringing a decent chance of evening storms. These storms will not only produce cloud to ground lightning but could also produce gust downburst wind to 50 mph.
