Though residents are likely to see record-breaking hot temperatures, they are in store for weather that’s about 20 degrees above normal through next week, said Josh Smith, National Weather Service meteorologist.
The high predicted for Thursday is 65 degrees and 68 degrees Friday. Normal temperatures are in the low 50s, Smith said.
Saturday may bring clouds in over the Treasure Valley, but only a small chance of weak rain. It won’t be until Wednesday that temperatures will be closer to normal, Smith said.
“We do have another trough coming in Wednesday and that’s going to feel like early winter,” he said. “Our temperatures will drop below normal.”

Wednesday and Thursday are expected to have temperatures in the high 40s to low 50s, he said.
After that meteorologists expect the weather to warm up again.
