Another storm system heading our way

Weather Forecast Friday

Finally got to see some clear skies across the upper Treasure Valley by late Saturday morning but those skies then closed with scattered clouds. We should see the same conditions overnight and through most of Sunday. The West Central Mountains will see scattered chances of snow showers for Saturday night, with snow levels still around 6500'.

The next round of rain for the valley will move in late Sunday from the west, starting with increasing clouds about mid-day to early afternoon. By the time we get to early evening Sunday we expect to see showers move into the lower Treasure Valley and spread eastward from there. We look to get a brief break about 9 pm but the next wave will bring heavier rainfall beginning just after midnight and into the early hours of Monday.

Showers will remain scattered throughout the day Monday in the valley but more concentrated in the mountains through mid-afternoon. Then we should dry out until the next round is expected for late Wednesday.

Temperatures will be near normal for most of next week, with morning lows in the upper 30 to lower 40s and highs starting out in the upper 50s. A cold front coming in with Sunday's system will drop highs in the lower 50s for Monday. But those will rebound into the lower 60s by Wednesday. The next system will also bring in cooler temperatures with highs on Thursday dropping again into the lower 50s. By next weekend we should be dry and back in the mid-60s.
