Idaho bracing for record cold, record rainfall, and snow

“(Temperatures) should be a record low high temperature (for the day).”Jay Breidenbach, a meterologist with the National Weather Service in Boise. “That’s going to be 20 to 30 degrees below normal.”

Rainfall could break the 79-year-old record for the entire month of June, and the Sawtooths will “feel like winter.”

An unusual storm system will bring unseasonably cold temperatures and noteworthy precipitation to southwest Idaho on Monday, with snow expected in the mountains and rainfall in the Treasure Valley (Boise area) potentially breaking a 79-year-old record, according to weather experts.

Snow is expected to fall in the mountains above 7,000 feet in elevation.  The Sawtooths will “feel like winter,” said Breidenbach.

  1. This is one of the oddest starts to summer!!! We are in the panhandle and for weeks it has been inconsistent… CAN NOT rely on the weather forecasts or models anything more than 12 hours.
    Start out with rain, clears and have temps of high 70s and 80s; then out of no where, BIG thunderstorms and temps fall to the 50s. then a few more days of cool before out of no where, 80s and 90s.
    Our hay was ready to cut 2 weeks ago… a big cut this year and just when we were thinking of cutting this week… we got a 8 hour down pour last night and is still raining this morning.
    The wheat farmers I am sure are beginning to sweat some as the fields are starting to ripen and need to dry out. Going to be an interesting harvest this year.

  2. Very slow start to summer. I’m usually done picking my haskap berries by now but just starting this year.

    Ah we are back to my youth. “Ice Age Returns” to “Global Warming” to “Climate Change” and back to the beginning. LOL. Ya live long enough you see it all at least twice.

  3. Same strange start to summer here in usually boiling hot SW Utah. The last week of June and first 2 weeks of July have usually been when we get high temperatures of up to 110 or even 115, but today it was a beautiful 78 degrees and sunny at 2 p.m. Never seen anything like it in my 22 years living here, where our summers are generally brutal, straight through, except for the occasional monsoon rainstorm. This time of the year, we are usually lucky if the temperature gets below 80 at night, and it is often 90 or higher at midnight. Tonight it’s supposed to drop down to 54.

    If this keeps up, they will soon be telling us that CO2 emissions are causing global cooling and must be eliminated to prevent a new ice age.
