Mostly sunny skies were widespread throughout southwest Idaho today and temperatures have been quite pleasant, running a bit below normal in the mid to upper 80's under a dry northwesterly flow across the region.  A few high clouds at times met up with a northwest breeze this afternoon.  Skies will be clear tonight with lows in the mid to upper 80's.

The heat returns starting tomorrow, as we find ourselves under a southwesterly flow aloft, maintaining mostly sunny and dry weather, but bumping temperatures up several degrees through midweek, running 5-10 degrees above normal, possibly even reaching 100 degrees.

Sunday will be near 96 degrees, with little change on Monday.  Tuesday and Wednesday will approach triple digits.  A weak low pressure trough swings through the region north of our area on Thursday and Friday, allowing temperatures to cool back a few degrees to the low 90's.
