Active weather pattern sticking around through early June


Afternoon thunderstorms have become all too common across the Treasure Valley over the past few weeks. Looking back at May so far, we've had some amount of moisture every 2 or 3 days since May 11th and the possibility of more storms continues in the forecast for the remainder of the month.

With our storms that rolled through last night, most areas saw a tenth of an inch or so, while the Boise area picked up 0.22" of rain in less than an hours time. This pattern continues our trend of above average precipitation for the month. We've already received 1.86" of precipitation in May which is above our 1.39" average, in case you're wondering, that's nowhere near our record monthly amount which is 4.40" set back in 1998.

With that being said, the month isn't quite over just yet and we do have the possibility of more showers in the forecast. Our current storm system is moving off to the east but another low pressure system will drop down from the Pacific Northwest midweek. Limited moisture will likely keep the best chance for showers to the mountain locations but there is a possibility for showers in Valley, mainly on Thursday.

Beyond this week, some models are suggesting that a drier than normal weather pattern could be setting up for the first part of June. Stay up to date with the latest forecast by visiting our weather page here.
