Though temperatures in Boise did not reach spring-like highs on Sunday, that didn't stop dozens from engaging in a February frolic of sorts in Ann Morrison Park. Those who got out today won't regret it because it's likely to be a soggy week, forecasters say.
People converged on the park to play frisbee, walk dogs, play soccer, feed the ducks and geese and even fly kites under partly-cloudy skies.
The high Sunday was just 44, and it felt much colder at times due to winds (reaching a peak of 24 mph, according to the National Weather Service). That's actually about normal for this time of year, but significantly cooler than Saturday's balmy high of 57.
The high Monday is expected to be about 49, but clouds will increase throughout the day. The forecast calls for rain and snow, starting late Monday and early Tuesday.
A series of systems out of the northwest will bring more precipitation to the Valley, but it won't be huge amounts, a meteorologist said. It does appear that it will be wet through next weekend, he said.
Days until spring: 30.
