After a soaking rain this morning (0.66" for Boise since midnight), we had another opportunity to get glimpses of the sunshine again this afternoon. There's still a chance for thunderstorms with heavy rain moving through this evening, but the better chance is south of I-84 and in our mountain zones.
We should be mainly dry overnight, with lows in the mid 40s. It's a dry start to Wednesday, but then scattered showers and storms will move back in during the afternoon/evening.
The unsettled weather pattern means we'll continue to see these off and on showers. There will be dry times - and Thursday is our best chance to possibly catch a completely dry day. Highs are gradually warming; into the mid 60s for Wednesday, then the upper 60s to near 70 for the end of the week and holiday weekend.
Whatever your plans are for the Memorial Day weekend, you'll want to keep the rain gear on standby. That's especially true if you're heading into the higher elevations. We'll still have a decent shot of afternoon showers and storms Friday through Monday.
Looking ahead, it's possible that we can turn the page on this cool/wet pattern by Tuesday. More sunshine is in the forecast for next week, as well as warmer temperatures.
