June in Boise off to a cooler, wetter than normal start — but 90s back next week

This June has been more unsettled than normal for Boise, forecasters say. But warmer, dry weather is on the way.
This June has been more unsettled than normal for Boise, forecasters say. But warmer, dry weather is on the way.

If you’re a longtime Boise resident, and this June feels just a little bit off, you’re right.

The first half of the month has been a little cooler and much wetter than normal — in fact, meteorologists at the National Weather Service have recorded 1.27 inches of rain so far at the Boise Airport. That’s .84 inches more than we typically get the whole month.

Friday has been a brooding, weepy day but forecasters say the weekend will be beautiful, as long as you’re not hoping for highs in the 90s.

The forecast high for Saturday is 77, five degrees below normal. Sunday will be warmer, about 84.

“There will be much more sun than we saw today,” said Megan Thimmesch, a meteorologist with the Weather Service in Boise.

Early next week, temperatures should be in the 90s again.

So far this June, we’ve had two days in the 90s (94 on June 3 and 97 on June 7). Those two days contrasted sharply with four days of highs in the 60s (June 10-13). We’ve also had five days in June with overnight lows in the 40s.
