BOISE, Idaho — A ridge of high pressure brought hot, dry summer weather back to Idaho for the weekend, but a deep low pressure dropping into the Pacific Northwest tonight will bring fall weather back into Idaho for the coming week.  

After reaching well-above normal temperatures over the weekend in the 90's, a cold front will push into southwest Idaho during the day tomorrow and temperatures will cool by 20-25 degrees, with below-normal temperatures lasting through the rest of the week.  

Increasing clouds tonight and tomorrow with a chance of widely scattered showers or thunderstorms late in the day on Monday.  Moisture is limited, so little rainfall is expected, with clearing skies on Tuesday.  Another cooler system will drop into the region late Tuesday and last into Wednesday with more abundant rainfall likely, especially in the mountains, where snow levels will fall to near 7000 feet.

Temperatures will dip to the upper 40's and low 50's at night in Boise, with highs during the day only reaching the mid to upper 60's.  Next weekend will be slightly milder, into the low 70's, with dry weather expected.
