Hot temperatures for today as we expect to reach triple digits for the first time this year. The last time Boise saw 100° or more was on August 11, 2018 and it was 104°. That means it's been close to a year without triple digit heat. Today's high will be 101°. However the record for this date was 108° set back in 2003.
We have a heat advisory for the Eastern portion of the magic Valley and Eastern Idaho until this evening. We also have a fire weather watch for the Southwest corner of the gem state as we expect a little unsettled air and monsoonal moisture to be a part of the heat we have today. That will give us a chance of some afternoon and evening thunderstorms in some of the higher elevations especially through the Southwest. Some of that moisture will also move up around into the west central mountains by later tonight and into portions of tomorrow. The hot temperatures stay with us until Wednesday. We've a cool down expected by midweek and then near normal daytime highs for this weekend.
