Cool and breezy Father’s Day

It’s unusually cool weather for Father’s Day!

Throughout southwestern Idaho, temperatures are about 10-20° cooler than they were 24 hours ago. Winds are howling east of Boise and a few scattered showers will continue to move across the Idaho panhandle.

Sunday will be a little less breezy but still cool, with high temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Then a new cold front will move across the area, giving way to even lower temperatures early next week.

Scattered light showers are expected across the valley Sunday night into Monday as a trough of low pressure rotates through central Idaho. During this time, snow can penetrate at depths of 1,500 meters, with several centimeters of snow accumulating above 2,000 to 2,000 meters.

Monday will be another stormy afternoon in the Magic Valley, feeling more like early spring with temperatures in the low 50s and winds gusting up to 40 mph. There is also a chance of local frost on Tuesday morning as temperatures in the Magic Valley are expected to drop into the mid 30s.

If you’re planning on camping in the mountains or traveling inland in the coming days, make sure you bring layers as nighttime temperatures will dip into the low 20s and low 30s while highs will reach the upper limit of 50 degrees and below during the day. 60’s.

If you enjoyed the summer heat, don’t worry: the cool spell will be short-lived. We’re warming back up to summer temperatures, just in time for the official start of summer (this Thursday at 2:51 PM MDT).
