With summer-like temperatures covering the Treasure Valley like a warm blanket today, a yellow air-quality alert for increased ozone levels has been issued for Boise. The AQI index for today is 53, on the low end of the moderate level.
Temperatures are expected to hit the upper 80s today, with continued warm days and clear evenings through much of the week and not a chance of showers expected until Friday.
Meanwhile, the Boise River continues to run high - at approximately 7,300 cubic feet per second. The flood flow is 7,000 cfs. Regulated flows on the river below Lucky Peak Dam will continue run above flood stage, but if the dry weather continues as exected, flows will likely be reduced slowly by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
