BOISE, Idaho — Abnormally cold weather over the weekend left much of Idaho with record or near-record cold temperatures, with some northern mountain areas seeing significant snow. Boise dipped to a record low of 17 degrees Monday morning, breaking the old record of 19 set way back in 1878. Several other locations saw new record lows.
High pressure will expand into Idaho through the next few days, bringing mostly sunny days and clear nights, and temperatures will rebound gradually to near normal readings through the week. Normal highs would be near 60 degrees, lows in the mid 30's.
A weak disturbance will brush the region on Friday with a few clouds and isolated mountain showers. Halloween will be dry and mild. Evening temperatures will fall into the low to mid 40's.
