Boise ties record for days in a row of triple-digit temperatures

Boise saw a high of 100 degrees Saturday, officially matching the record of 9 consecutive days of triple-digit heat, according to the National Weather Service.

The record was previously set in 2003, and matched in 2006, said meteorologist Les Colin.

“This is the earliest that it's happened in the calendar year,” he said.

But, it’s unlikely the Treasure Valley will top that record on Sunday. The high is expected to be 95, he said.

The rest of the week will head toward a cool-down. By the weekend, it could be as cool as the high 80s, Colin said.
