Tuesday will be the warm before the storm!
The weather has been spectacular since late Friday. But now, a storm brewing off the coast is set to move into the west and it will bring a significant change. Once it moves in, it will stick around for several days before moving out. Here’s how it plays out.
Tuesday: We’ll see sunshine in the morning along with increasing south winds. The wind will be strongest in the east end of the Treasure Valley through the Magic Valley. It could gust above 30-35 mph. This south wind means a front is about to move into the area. Look for increasing clouds in the afternoon. Eastern Oregon and the Lower Treasure Valley may see some showers and thunderstorms late in the day.
Wednesday: The best potential for rain and thunderstorms will occur in the early morning through lunch time. By then, the core of the front will move east, but, unstable air might kick up some spotty showers and isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs will drop into the 50’s.
Thursday-Sunday: The low pressure center will stick around through the weekend. With this kind of scenario, we’ll see occasional showers. There can also be occasional sun. But, any sun helps to trigger the occasional rain.
The Mountains: The temperatures will just be cold enough for either a rain/snow mix or snow around the 5,000’ mark. That means our ski resorts will see occasional snow showers.
Summary: It will turn cool and unsettled starting Wednesday. Temperatures will go from being much warmer than normal to actually being cooler than normal through the first of next week.
