Remember all summer long when it didnt rain at all? That narrative changed Tuesday as it has rained on and off all morning long.
As of 1 p.m., National Weather Service officials measured .55 of an inch of rain had fallen at the Boise Airport.
To put that in perspective, more rain has fallen since 1 a.m. Tuesday than the first 15 days of October, which totaled .14 of an inch of rain, with most of that falling on Monday.
The rain has also caused power outages all over the Treasure Valley including outages by the Warm Springs area east of Downtown Boise and by East Pine Avenue and Meridian Road in Meridian.
The rain is a harbinger of more fall-like weather to come. The temperature at 10 a.m. Tuesday was 61 degrees, and it isnt expected to get any warmer later today as colder air will move into the Treasure Valley. It is also expected to be windy Tuesday afternoon, with sustained winds of up 35 to 45 mph, with 55 mph gusts possible.
Once all that is over with, expect clear, sunny skies but colder days. The estimated high temperature for the Boise area Wednesday is only 58 degrees. The estimated high temperatures for the rest of the work week are in the mid 60s, according to the National Weather Service.
