The Next Weather Maker bringing heavy showers for some


A low pressure system currently moving through the state and will bring the possibility of showers and thunderstorms to the region throughout the day. The bulk of the moisture will likely impact the eastern half of the state with the most significant showers likely from the upper valley and points farther south and east.

With this storm moving in from the Northwest, you'll also notice the cooler temperatures and blustery winds. High temperatures are expected to stay in the low 60's this afternoon with winds generally 20-30 mph for most of the Valley, with gusts up to 40 mph, winds will taper off overnight into Saturday morning.

Our low pressure system will park itself south of our area over the weekend, which means that a threat of showers will linger into the weekend. Waves of moisture rotating around the storm will likely keep some cloud cover and a few showers for our area through Saturday afternoon. Most models show that the Central Mountains and Southern Highlands will likely see the heaviest rainfall amounts. The storm will continue to weaken and slowly work its way northeast out of the area early next week.

At this point, Mother's Day will likely be dry for much of the Treasure Valley with partly cloudy skies expected, highs will be in the upper 60's. Drier and warmer weather will likely return early next week.
