A small weather system that appears to provide some much-needed moisture to southern Idaho is expected to arrive by Tuesday evening. Twin Falls is predicted to have a fifty-percent chance of precipitation in the next 24 hours, followed by more rain for the weekend.

With the arrival of the autumn equinox now less than two weeks away, it appears the Magic Valley will get an early taste of fall with cloudy conditions and an increased chance of rain on the way. Twin Falls daytime highs will drop to an average of just above 70 for the remainder of the week, with temperatures in the middle to upper 60s expected for a couple of days.

It's been an extremely warm summer in southern Idaho. Multiple fires are still burning in central and southern Idaho, and the potential for rain this week should be a much-welcomed sight for state firefighters. There's presently a 46 percent chance of rain throughout the Magic Valley for Tuesday night, with wind gusts up to 10 miles per hour.

Saturday (September 17) there's also a 36 percent chance of morning showers for the Twin Falls area. Tropical Storm Kay brought some much-needed moisture over the weekend to some areas in the west, including Nevada and California. Late-summer storms are common in southern Idaho, and maybe residents will be treated to some thunder and lightning activity.

It might not be a bad idea to have that umbrella near you when you leave work Tuesday. Wednesday through Friday appear to be mostly dry, with some lingering cloud cover.
