The all-time high temperature for Tuesday in Boise is 78, and that was set in 1877, according to the National Weather Service. It will be warm today probably over 70 but we're not likely to set a record.
The low this morning was 41, so we're looking at a 30-degree swing from low to high temperatures today. If you can, go out and bask in the sunny, warm goodness. It will be breezy, with winds of 15 to 20 mph, so it may not feel quite as warm as it is.
A cold front from the west is headed this way expected to arrive in the late afternoon or early evening and rain won't be far behind.
After 6 p.m., there could be rain and thunderstorms in the Treasure Valley but it's possible that only the mountains will get wet tonight, Weather Service meteorologist Josh Smith said.
Temperatures in the Valley will cool down significantly on Wednesday, when the high is expected to reach the low 50s. And that's where we're going to be at for the foreseeable future. Prepare for rainy days through the weekend and early next week.
Snow levels are going to drop to about 4,000 feet on Wednesday. Bogus Basin is expected to get 2 to 5 inches of snow on Wednesday and Thursday. There will be steady snow in the mountains over the weekend, Smith said.
