Treasure Valley under a wind advisory ahead of the weekend warm-up

Though temperatures are predicted to get up to 70 degrees by Sunday, Friday is expected to be chilly and windy in the Treasure Valley, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Les Colin.

A wind advisory is in place in the Boise area from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and residents can expect wind gusts of up to 40 mph. The high is predicted to only get up to 68 degrees, which is well below the normal high of 76 degrees, Colin said.

There’s a 20 percent chance of rain for the Treasure Valley, he said.

But, after that cool day, things are expected to dry out a bit, Colin said.

Saturday is expected to be sunny with no precipitation predicted, and just a bit breezy, with wind gusts only getting up to about 15 mph in the Boise area. The high is expected to be 68 degrees again, he said.

Sunday will see a high of 74 degrees, with little to no winds and no precipitation predicted, according to the National Weather Service.
