Could it Get Any Hotter in Boise This Summer? Spoiler Alert: Yes
We're breaking triple digits all week in the Treasure Valley. Scary thing is, it's totally possible the heat could increase.
According to Intellicast, the average high in Boise in July hovers right around 90°. So hitting 100° for a few days isn't entirely out of the ordinary. Before we go assuming that global warming is heating Boise up and we're all doomed, let's take a look at our history.
The hottest day on record ever in Boise was July 19th, 1960. On that day, temperatures soared to 111°. There have been a handful of days since where the thermometer got close, but only once has that temperature been reached.
Is 2017 the year we break the record? No signs indicated so, but as we learned back in the 60's, it can always get hotter in the Treasure Valley.
