Rainy September not done yet

September 27, 2013 

A particularly wet September promises a bit more rain before giving way to October.

Another 0.18 inches fell at Boise Airport on Thursday, bringing the month-to-date total to 1.56 inches. That's well above the historical average of 0.48 inches, and it's a far cry from last September, when Boise received just 0.05 inches of rain.

With daytime highs in the 50s, the temperatures also have been unseasonal the past few days — a full 20 degrees below normal. A warming trend begins today, when the daytime high will reach 63 degrees under sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service. Tonight's low will dip to 46 degrees.

And while Saturday promises to be even warmer — a forecast high of 71 degrees — a chance of rain returns to the region for the weekend and persists into next week. High temperatures in the 60s and lows in the 40s will continue through the middle of the week.
