How do you spell relief? The National Weather Service office in Boise promises a moderate temperature drop later in the week, but not before yet another Treasure Valley day in the triple digits and an orange air quality alert. A mandatory burn ban also remains in effect.
A record high, nearing 102 degrees, is expected in Boise today.
Smoke from the region's wildfires is expected to hover over the valley this morning before northwest winds sweep through Boise, giving way to clear evenings and sunny days with highs remaining in the low 90s.
Meanwhile, a red flag warning remains in effect for much of the Boise National Forest, Sawtooth Mountains, Lost River Range and Challis National Forrest until midnight tonight.
