Things were rockin' a bit yesterday evening and overnight, with strong thunderstorms and gusty winds rolling through the area. Winds peaked between 50-55 mph in many places, and there were reports of downed trees, powerlines and even a barn collapse in the Magic Valley.
Today will be a much different picture, filled with plenty of sunshine and slightly cooler temperatures. Highs will be in the upper 80's across the Treasure Valley, with lows in the upper 50's to low 60's overnight. Temperatures will cool off just a touch more tomorrow and Thursday, with highs in the mid 80's. By the holiday weekend, plan for temperatures in the upper 80's to low 90's in the valleys, and 70's and 80's in the mountains. Skies will be mostly sunny into early next week in the lower valleys, with a similar story in the mountains (aside from late Saturday, when we'll be watching for more clouds and a stray thunderstorm).
The Fourth of July looks hot and dry, with highs likely in the low 90's.
