Cooler, wetter weather possible by end of week

July 29, 2013 

— Hot weather in the Treasure Valley will be dialed back a bit this week, with temperatures remaining in the 80s and 90s.

Monday will be warm, with a high of 92 degrees, but will fall into the 50s at night, according to the National Weather Service.

Tuesday’s weather will mirror that pattern. Meteorologists expect Boise to reach 93 degrees. Both days willl be clear and sunny with light winds.

Things will heat up Wednesday, when temperatures flirt again with triple digits. But Wednesday’s high of 98 degrees is not predicted to last. Temperatures fall to 90 on Thursday, and to a cool 84 degrees on Friday.

Thursday and Friday also could bring some moisture to the Boise area. Both days will be partly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms.

Precipitation would be a welcome treat in the Treasure Valley, as hot and dry weather has helped fuel the many wildfires that have burned tens of thousands of acres across the region in the past couple weeks. As of Monday morning, Boise has received only 0.13 inches of rain in July, less than half the typical rainfall for the month.
