Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Boise ID
253 PM MDT Sun Oct 25 2020

.SHORT TERM...Tonight through Tuesday night...Showers have
ended across the area, with clearing conditions noted. Sensors
across the forecast area continue to indicate the presence of
gusty to breezy conditions, which will continue into the evening
hours before weakening. Northerly flow will bring cold
temperatures tonight, with record low values possible. An influx
of high level clouds may impact how cold the area gets overnight,
but values are still expected to contninue their cooling trend.
Dry conditions will continue as a ridge moves towards the region
early this week. As the northerly flow loses influence on Tuesday,
expect temperatures to rebound, warming to near seasonal normals
by Tuesday afternoon.

.LONG TERM...Wednesday through Sunday...Warm and dry through the
extended period with the upper level ridge over the region. Models
all now show little if any threat of precip on Friday as the ridge
remains amplified, but push the threat of precipitation into
Saturday. This only somewhat flattens the ridge aloft, so limited
chances of precipitation across the northern zones. Temperatures
will start off near normal but climb to slightly above normal by
