A very cool low pressure system continues to dominate weather conditions across the Intermountain region, with widespread valley rain and mountain snow. Temperatures are running 20 degrees below normal, more typical of late October or early November than of mid-September.
The center of the low pressure will be over southwest Idaho through this evening, shifting to the east by tomorrow. As the low moves east skies will start to clear from the west, but it will be cold again and that means cold for the Boise State game tonight and the FitOne tomorrow morning. Bring lots of layers.
High pressure continues to build into next week with dry weather and warmer temperatures, close to normal in the mid 70's by midweek.
