Numerous showers and storms will be around this afternoon through this evening with heavy downpours at times. Winds in the stronger storms could gust into the 25-45 mph range. But this right now looks more like a rain event. We need the rain but it could come down in a short amount of time leading to some localized street flooding. Use caution this afternoon and this evening.
Tonight the showers and storms will taper off in the Treasure Valley early and linger in the mountains throughout the night. There will be enough cold air where the higher elevations could see snow tonight! Temperatures in the Treasure Valley will be in the 40s.
Tomorrow partly sunny skies will be around with highs in the 60s. We'll again fall into the 40s for lows Thursday night and rebound to the low 70s on Friday with partly sunny conditions.
There is a change to the weekend forecast. Saturday looks nice with sunny skies and highs around 80. Sunday will be warmer with highs in the mid 80s but there is a chance for isolated storms in the afternoon with gusty winds.
Monday could possibly be a day similar to today with many showers and storms around with cooler temperatures as highs will be in the 60s to around 70.
Then we'll quickly warm again back into the 80s for Tuesday and Wednesday.
