Not really “few brief showers” here in BOI… more like solid rain for some time now!
It may clear by the end of the day…
I know, we are just a little finger at the top of the Country, not easy to predict.

The rain for northeastern parts of Northland was put in the forecast above, it did look on the cards 🙂

Ok, but it is continuous rain from about 11am to, may be, 5 or 6pm it looks like.
Lets hope tomorrow will be dry.
