Idaho Hits a Few Record Highs
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The heat wave blanketing much of Idaho has set a slew of record highs and shows no immediate signs of letting up. Record temperatures were recorded Monday in several Idaho cities, including 106 degrees in Lewiston and 110 degrees in Boise, shattering the previous high for July 1 of 104 degrees in 1924.
The all-time high for Boise is 111 degrees. Elsewhere, weather officials issued heat advisories in the north in Coeur d'Alene, the Magic Valley and the east in Idaho Falls where temperatures peaked in the mid-90s, well above the average for early July.
Forecasters are predicting temperatures to slowly cool down to the 90's in the Magic Valley for the 4th of July Holiday weekend.
