Changes in the weather…

The unsettled weather that’s brought rain, hail, wind and thunderstorms to the region isn’t entirely over yet, but this week’s weather in Boise is expected to gradually calm down and warm up to hit 90 degrees by next weekend. This photo is from McCall on Friday night, where there was plenty of rain, thunder and lightning, before a surprisingly clear and pleasant weekend. The National Weather Service is predicting relatively calm weather in Boise this week, but thunderstorms, including heavy rain, gusty winds and small hail, are expected to continue along the Owyhees and the Idaho/Nevada border through tomorrow. Long term, the trend is warming, but afternoon thunderstorms are still a threat in the mountains. And after the weekend warmup, another cold front is predicted to hit the area next Monday, with showers and thunderstorms.
