Though there were some rain sprinkles Thursday in the mountains east of Boise in the area of the Trinity Ridge fire, the Treasure Valley isn't likely to get any of that moisture, according to the National Weather Service.
The cloud cover over the Valley on Thursday morning is thick, blocking out the sun's rays and warmth. The high temperature at the Boise Airport at 1 p.m. was just 74.
At 23 percent, the humidity is a little higher than normal. The norm is closer to 15 to 18 percent.
George Skari, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service, said Boise has gone 53 days without measurable rain. But due to a wet spring, the area is still ahead in the "water year." Since October, the area has received 11.34 inches; the norm is 11.2 inches.
Skari said what's most important for irrigators is the precipitation snow in the winter.
The high in Boise Thursday is supposed to be 84, though it may not reach that. The high be about 87 on Friday, and in the low-90s on Saturday.
