Hello!!

So, we are thing about moving to the Boise area this summer. Currently we are in SoCal. I have been follow the weather in Boise this last week or so. It has been in the low teens, and even in single digits. Is this an exceptionallly cold winter? Its been very cold here too. Just wondering. I know I can addapt to anything, but Boise is said to have "mild" winters. Thanks!

Yes, this winter has been unusually cold. This is my fifth winter in Boise, and this has been by far the longest cold snap I have seen. Most winter days hover around the freezing mark during the day, then drop into the 20s at night.

This winter is definitely on the unusual side. An article in the paper a couple days ago said since the last week of December, the Boise area weather has been about 20 degrees below normal. I believe it! Last year (our first winter here), was very mild, and this year is just the opposite, so I'm hoping coming years will be somewhere in between...

April & May are the best times to visit.....you'll love it.

It's cyclical. If you live here long enough, you'll see a winter like this again. The question is when? And yes, I'd say most are somewhere in between.

The answer I got about Boise weather before I moved there was that you can expect 3-4 weeks of really cold weather in the winter and 3-4 weeks of really hot weather in the summer. The rest of the year is not too bad. Only thing I did not like is that Spring seemed to drag on forever. Remember one week in May that we had 80 degree weather one day and snow flurries a few days later.

I have lived all over the country and found Boise's weather to be some of the best anywhere. You have 4 fairly moderate seasons.

We moved here after being in San Diego and Hawaii for 20 years. We adjusted fine, takes a little while but you adapt. No worries. Boise is a great place to live and play.

hi sunnymom6
I read your post. and I live in So Cal to. I live in Menifee ca which is by temecula ca.
I also have been thinking of relocating to Boise to. I have visit there a couple of times very nice city.
very quint downtown. I have live in the northwest, portland oregon, and northwern Idaho, and northern california, what brought me back to calif. was I miss my family, kids, and grandson. and also had a hard time living up there in the winter. because i got depresssed in the winter months. but it been 7 years since i live up there. and I miss living in four season. so I heard from our friend, that live in boise that there alot more sunny days in the winter months. so I have been thinking about checking it out to in april. I really enjoy living up north. the pace is so much slower there. it so crazy living in calif.and it hard to make friends. i mostly hang out with my family. I was going to check out Meridian, and Boise. I heard Eagle was kind of pricey. my husband and I are empty nester, so were thinking about being snow bird and come back south for the winter. well good luck !if you have any question please ask.
