Climate

The best time to visit Idaho is during the summer months when temperatures average in the late 20's but can peak to 32c. If you don't like the heat come in early or late summer. The summer months are also the drier months with July and August being the driest. Idaho has a very continental climate with hot summers and very cold winters. The state is only 500km from the Pacific Ocean. The major moisture source therefore is maritime air from the prevailing westerly winds.
