A very summer-like pattern returns to the region as we head into the latter half of the week. Temperatures are expected to continue to warm into the mid 90’s through the weekend. Dry weather will accompany the warming trend as we remain under a northwest flow pattern.
ECLIPSE FORECAST: If you’re planning on viewing the Eclipse on Monday, the weather is looking to cooperate. For now, mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies are expected for prime viewing locations in the Gem State. Models have been hinting at a storm system that will form off of the California coast, it could pull in some moisture early next week. Each model and each model run are inconsistent in the placement and timing of the incoming moisture. Currently, the timing for any shower activity is Sunday afternoon for areas in Eastern Idaho. In the Treasure Valley, we're not looking at any showers until possibly Tuesday or Wednesday.
