More record high temperatures possible Thursday


Temperature trends continue to point in a warmer-than-average direction for the Southwest Region. You probably won't be surprised by this but, Boise has remained above its average high temperature since January 5th. Granted, there have been days where we've cooled down to just a few degrees above the average high, which ranges from the upper 30's to low 40's(see graph below).

Looking ahead to tomorrow, temperatures are expected to climb into the 60's. Our current record high is 65 degrees, set back in 2015, and some models suggest we could at least tie that temperature in Boise. We've already set three new record highs for this year, all within the last ten days. The first record high temperature set on January 30th with a high of 59 degrees, then 59 and 61 degrees on February 2nd and 3rd respectively. Temperatures forecast for tomorrow are 20-25 degrees above our average high for the time of year. Long range models aren't showing a significant change in the coming weeks...this spring-like pattern may just carry us through the remainder of winter(what little we saw of winter).

What's changes are coming this weekend?

A ridge of high pressure over the west coast will continue to dominate our weather pattern through Friday. Little changes are headed this way over the weekend. The most significant change will be a drop in temperatures as a weak disturbance will move through the region Friday night into Saturday. Temperatures over the weekend are expected to be in the upper 40's with mainly dry conditions across the board, little impact is expected on the higher elevations with this weak storm. Another weak chance at precipitation returns on Monday next week but the models suggest the storm will split, and weaken, as it moves into the Pacific Northwest.
