BOISE, Idaho — While we're still feeling the sticky air "sticking" around, the monsoonal moisture is tracking farther to the east, and we'll be drying out soon. High pressure is building in for drier conditions and hotter temperatures through the first half of the week.
As this high pressure ridge builds in, there will be some embedded disturbances in the flow. This will keep a chance of isolated afternoon thunderstorms in the forecast for SE Oregon, and the mountain regions of Idaho. For valley locations, expect less humid air, more sunshine, and high temperatures in the upper 90s to around 100° for both Tuesday and Wednesday.
A shortwave disturbance will move in during the middle of the week. This will bring back a slight chance for thunderstorms to all of Southern Idaho, including the Treasure Valley. Any storms that form will be capable of producing gusty wind and bouts of heavy rain. The best chance for this active weather looks to be on Thursday afternoon/evening.
For the end of the week and into the weekend, temperatures look to stay at more comfortably warm levels. Look for mostly sunny skies, and valley highs in the mid to upper 80s Friday-Monday.
