After an unusual June weekend filled with record low temperatures and snow in some areas, you may be wondering what's next.

Forecasters say for the next few weeks into the summer months across Southeast Idaho, we're looking at a 35% to 45% chance of having above normal temperatures and a 50% chance of having above normal precipitation as well.

This could mean warmer temperatures and an increased amount of showers and thunderstorms that we see throughout the summer.

Kurt Buffalo, Meteorologist at National Weather Service Pocatello said, "This year looking at all the long term climate trends, things like El Niño just long term trends over years and decades, the amount of soil moisture that's around, we're seeing those above average chances favoring both precipitation and temperature."

Both Pocatello and Idaho Falls fell just short this past weekend on Sunday of tying their records for the coldest recorded June temperature, each by one degree.
