BOISE, Idaho — A strong line of thunderstorms tracked through the area Saturday evening, bringing gusty, damaging wind. KTVB received several reports of trees down and power outages, especially in the Caldwell area.
While it looks like the most active weather has passed for this evening, another round of showers/storms is possible during the pre-dawn hours of Sunday morning.
Expect mostly sunny skies for Sunday, and temperatures much closer to seasonal averages. There will still be a bit of a breeze tomorrow, but not the strong wind of Saturday. Highs for the valley will be in the upper 70s.
More cloud cover is expected on Monday, with valley highs in the upper 70s again. Once the low pressure system departs the area, sunshine will break out across the region. Mostly sunny skies are expected Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Temperatures will warm well into the 80s again by the middle of the week. Forecast models are indicating that temperatures could head into the 90s again on Friday with a slight chance for thunderstorms.
