Extreme Heat Strikes Idaho
BOISE – July 30, 2018
Monday and Tuesday are believed to become the hottest summer days in the state of Idaho, local media reports.
The temperature across the state will get as high as 41 Celsius, or 106 Fahrenheit.
“Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Be extra vigilant, do not leave children or pets unattended in your vehicle,” the NWS advised.
So far this year, Boise’s highest temperature has been 102 degrees, a mark we reached on July 5, 9 and 24. Tuesday’s temperatures are about 10 degrees hotter than average. But it’s not all bad news: Temperatures will taper back off into the mid-90s by Thursday, says Mike Cantin, meteorologist from NWS. They’ll likely hover around 100 degrees into the weekend.
