A large low pressure system continues to dominate the western U.S., keeping Idaho under an unsettled weather pattern for continued rain showers and afternoon thunderstorms throughout the holiday weekend. Overnight rain has diminished in the Treasure Valley this morning, and some partial clearing is expected overhead. But by afternoon, showers and thunderstorms will redevelop as the air mas is unstable and will lead to convection. Highs will remain cool, in the low to mid 60's.
Rain showers will continue this evening, with more widespread rain and thunderstorms through Sunday and into Memorial Day. However, temperatures will moderate and climb closer to normal for late May, with highs on Sunday and Monday near 70 degrees in Boise. Mountain areas will continue to see numerous rain showers with some rain/snow mix in the mornings, and snow accumulations above 7500 feet.
Unsettled weather continues through next week, but showers will diminish to just a chance in the afternoons by the end of the week. High temperatures will be near normal Wednesday through Friday in the mid 70's.
