After rain, Treasure Valley to see a dry, warm week

Boise residents can expect rain all day Thursday, but then a gradually warming, dry week, according to Josh Smith, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

A cold front pushed through Boise Wednesday and Thursday, bringing some precipitation along with it. The high temperature Thursday is predicted to be around 54 degrees, with a low of 37 degrees. But once the rain has passed through, the area will starting warming up and drying out, Smith said.

The clouds will clear out Friday with gusty winds. The high is predicted to be 59 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

“We'll warm about 2 to 3 degrees each day,” Smith said about the upcoming week.

By late next week, the temperatures are expected to be in the high 70s.

“By late next week our normal this time of year is 63 so we'll be 13 degrees above normal,” he said.

It’ll be dry, too, so a good time to make sure your lawn is getting enough water, Smith said.

Tt’s unlikely the area will break any temperature records within the next few days, Smith said.
