A weak weather disturbance is bringing clouds across the region this morning and may result in a few light sprinkles here and there. Otherwise, dry with decreasing clouds as the morning goes on. By afternoon, mostly sunny skies throughout southwest Idaho. Temperatures will reach the low to mid 80's in the Treasure Valley.
The combination of an upper level high pressure system over us, and a moderate southwesterly flow into Idaho, will result in perfect conditions for near record heat on Sunday. In fact, Boise's record for the date is 100 degrees set in 1918. We are likely to tie or break that record as we climb to the triple digits tomorrow, and many of the lower valley locations will be near 100 degrees. Mountain areas will warm into the mid to upper 80's and a few 90's.
The heat will back off a bit early in the week, but it will still be hot, running about 15 degrees above average for mid June. A weak cold front will move in late Tuesday and early Wednesday. Moisture is limited to some mountain showers, but Boise will stay dry with temperatures down into the mid to upper 80's. The heat returns through the end of the week.
