BOISE, Idaho — While Memorial Day is often considered to be the "unofficial start of summer," it looks like that really rings true in our forecast this week! Here we go... jumping off the high-dive into sizzling summer temperatures!
Under mostly clear skies, temperatures won't be as cold overnight tonight. Expect valley lows in the mid to upper 40s early Monday morning.
The holiday will feature mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies (high clouds & filtered sunshine) and highs in the upper 70s to near 80° for valley locations. Wind will be light (5-12 mph), out of the SE in the morning and out of the SW in the afternoon.
The warm-up really ramps up starting on Wednesday. It's into the 80s, followed by a quick jump into the 90s. It looks like the hottest days of the week will be Friday (96°) and Saturday (99°). Record high temps are possible, as are triple digits!
The period stays dry, and without any significant wind. The forecast this week is all about the big warm-up! Get the backyard pool party ready!!
