Breezy conditions will keep it chilly this evening in the Treasure Valley. We may also see a few isolated showers pass by over the mountains and foothills. A slow warming trend will begin Friday for much of the area. Look for partly cloudy skies with highs approaching the mid 50’s. By Saturday, temperatures will warm into the low 60’s and it will be sunny. We may see a few more clouds late Sunday, otherwise, look for mild temperatures in the mid 60’s. A large high pressure system will move in next week. This will bring sunny skies and much warmer temperatures. In fact, by midweek, we could see highs approaching 80 degrees.
