The Boise area will get rain on-and-off throughout the weekend, and will see a dramatic cool-down by Sunday, according to Elizabeth Padian, National Weather Service meteorologist.
If residents want to soak up the sun, Friday will be their best bet. The high temperature Friday will be 86, Padian said. And the day will be dry with clear skies.
That will change Saturday with a chance of thunderstorms and rain. The high temperature will still be warm: With a predicted high of 84, it’ll actually be about 15 degrees above normal temperatures for this time of year. But, it’ll still be well below record-breaking temperatures. (The record high for that day is 95 degrees, set in 2013.)
Saturday will see showers off and on throughout the day, with the possibility of hail and gusty winds reaching speeds of 30 mph. Residents should keep an eye out for lightning, Padian said.
A cold front will blow in Saturday night, dropping temperatures dramatically. The high Sunday is predicted to be around 68 degrees, which is slightly below normal.
Rain will fall throughout Sunday as well, but is expected to clear out by Monday, Padian said.
