Tuesday rainfall beats 86-year-old record in Boise


The old record of 0.33" of rain set back in 1932 will be replaced with today's storm totals. A moist Pacific storm system has brought warmer temperatures and needed moisture to the region. Across the Treasure Valley today we've had a fairly constant stream of rainfall which has led to the new record of 0.39" early this evening. This figure will go up as the cold front continues to bring moisture into the area throughout the evening. I expect we could see a new record of a half inch or so before midnight.

Our storm system will clear out overnight, with exception of a few mountain snow showers, tomorrow will be dry for our region. A warm front will bring more rain and snow to the region on Thursday, mainly to the northern areas, but most places will see some precipitation. Rain is expected in the valleys with snow levels generally above 4,000 feet. At this point, the West Central and Boise Mountains will likely see 2-4" in the mountain valleys with 4-8" at higher elevations, localized amounts of a foot or more.
