Expect mostly clear skies overnight and cooler temps to start the day tomorrow. Valley highs will be in the upper 30s and low 40s. We'll start Thursday with bright skies, but then get some high clouds that move in for the afternoon/evening. There's a slight chance of showers/storms near the Idaho-Nevada border for tomorrow afternoon. Thursday is the warmest day of the week, with highs in the mid to upper 70s.
An upper level low-pressure trough will move through on Friday and kick up the wind. Mountain Home and points east may experience wind gusts at 40mph+ Friday afternoon. There's also a slight chance this trough brings a few showers to the Treasure Valley during the first half of Friday - but the showers are more likely for our higher elevations.
It stays breezy into the weekend. Saturday is the warmer half of the weekend. Highs should be around 70, with mostly sunny skies. The changes really come into play on Sunday, after a dry cold front moves through from Canada. This will cool our temperatures by around 10 degrees in most spots. Starting Sunday into next week, expect highs only around 60 degrees.
