As summer wanes, Boise’s heat streak now 3rd longest in history

Boise is still streaking — and now just nine days from the all-time record.

On Wednesday, we hit 41 days in a row of high temperatures of 90 or above, according to Elizabeth Padian at the National Weather Service.

That’s the third-longest 90-and-above heat streak. The forecast high for Thursday is 93.

The all-time record for days that are 90 or above is 50 days. That was set in 1875.

This year could tie the record for second-longest streak if we stay in the 90s through Sunday. The forecast shows highs in the 80s next week, starting Monday.
