Thunderstorms moving north from the Nevada border are expected to die out before reaching the Treasure Valley Wednesday night, a Boise-based meteorologist with the National Weather Service said.
The Weather Service had issued a red flag warning, alerting Valley residents to the possibility of scattered thunderstorms with "abundant lightning" and outflow winds of 40 to 50 miles per hour.
The warning was set to expire at midnight, but it has already been rescinded. That's good news for firefighters working to suppress wildfires throughout the region. A yellow air quality alert has been issued for Thursday.
The high temperature in Boise on Tuesday reached a blistering 106. At about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, the high was just 97 the temperature may peak another degree higher, but it's not expected to reach triple-digits today.
The forecast for tomorrow shows a high of 101. But things will be a bit cooler over the weekend 97 on Friday, 98 on Saturday and 99 on Sunday.
