Happy Sunday! Your Father's Day is looking wet and breezy with a slight chance of some isolated thunderstorms developing after noon. So if you do have outdoor activities planned, you may want to consider moving them inside because most of the day is looking wet and breezy. Right now we are seeing a break in shower development, but we are expected to see another round of on and off showers this evening. Highs will be cooler in the low 70s and precipitation is expected to stick around into Monday and Tuesday. The start to your work week is looking mostly cloudy with on and off showers throughout the morning so don’t forget your rain jacket or an umbrella before heading out the door. By the afternoon there is a chance of afternoon thunderstorm development after noon. That’s because the low pressure system that brought much of the moisture to the region is moving east over the Oregon/Nevada border, continuing the unsettled weather we have experienced over the weekend. Temperatures will continue to trend cooler, with highs only reaching the upper 60s, but a warm up is on the way!
FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM 3 PM SUNDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH MONDAY EVENING
The National Weather Service in Pocatello has issued a Flood Watch for portions of central Idaho and eastern Idaho,
including the following areas, in central Idaho: Lost River/Pahsimeroi and Sawtooth Mountains and in eastern Idaho, the Upper Snake Highlands.
Additional rainfall of 1 to 1.5 inches is expected through Monday night.
Embedded thunderstorms or multiple storms crossing the same location could bring rapid rates of rainfall in localized areas.
Low lying farm lands and areas near rivers and streams are at the highest risk for flooding to develop.
Keep in mind, a Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.
