After a warm, sunny day Wednesday, Treasure Valley residents will see a shift in temperatures and more than a week of on-and-off rain, according to Josh Smith, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
The high temperature could get up to 81 degrees Wednesday and it’ll be dry, he said.
“Today's going to be the nicest day in probably the next 10 days,” Smith said.
The skies will be mostly clear until Wednesday night when storm clouds start moving in. A low pressure system will come in, bringing lower temperatures and rain that could last until May 26, he said.
A thunderstorm will move in around 8 a.m. Thursday, when the high temperature is expected to be about 65 degrees. Temperatures are predicted to stay in the mid-60s for more than a week, which, though not record-breaking, is about 5 to 8 degrees below normal for this time of year, Smith said.
Smith said residents should prepare for rainy afternoons for the next 10 days.
