Sunday’s light rainfall might not be the only precipitation across the Treasure Valley this week.
A weak storm system from northern California will increase the chance of thunderstorms and precipitation Thursday through Saturday, said Korri Anderson, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.
The high was predicted to be 95 Sunday, but due to rain and cloud cover, only got to 84, according to meteorologist Les Colin.
The rain came with a narrow band of moisture that’s only bringing temporary reprieve from the heat, Colin said.

“It’ll all move away tomorrow and we're going to get back to where we thought we'd be today,” Colin said.
The rest of the week’s high temperatures will be in the low 90s and high 80s after a band of high air pressure hovering over the region was released by a cold front from the midwest, Anderson said.
This cool-down comes after a record-matching string of days with temperatures at or above 100 degrees. June 26 to July 4 saw triple-digit highs. The nine-day hot streak matched the previous record set in 2003 and matched in 2006.
Temperatures may increase in the valley after Sunday, Anderson said.
