It's hot, really hot. Extra hot. Boise is no stranger to hot summer days but if it feels like a little more than normal, your not alone. In fact if this weekend gets as hot as expected the area will beat an 88 year summer heat record.
Boise was named one of the best cities for year-round weather in the country! Boise! You go, Idaho! It's not the only local city to be named, though. Other cities in Washington, California, and Utah made the list, too!
