Temperatures are predicted to be lower than normal in the Treasure Valley until the weekend, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Elizabeth Padian.

The normal high temperature for this time of year holds around 88 degrees, but predicted high temperatures through Friday won’t even get up to 85, according to the National Weather Service.

“We'll be running around 5 to 6 degrees below normal for the next couple days and then warming up for the weekend,” Padian said.

Tuesday will see a predicted high of 81 degrees with a low of 51 degrees. The temperatures will stay in the low 80s until Saturday when the high jumps to about 89 degrees.

The cooler weather likely won’t come with strong winds or precipitation, she said.

Depending of firefighting efforts, the Treasure Valley may get smoke moving through from the Cherry Road and Rail fires in the mornings, Padian said.

“I don't think we'll get super socked-in, but I think there will be periods of smoke in the valley,” she said.
