BOISE, Idaho —
Boise in November now ranks as the 7th coldest November on record, the coldest since 2002. Clouds will be increasing Friday evening. Temperature inversions remain intact over southwest Idaho, along with an AIR STAGNTATION ADVISORY for eastern Oregon and western Idaho that will last through 5 AM tomorrow. An overnight cold front will help eliminate the inversion by tomorrow morning. It will also bring a chance of some scattered light rain/snow for the valleys, but little if any accumulation is likely. Mountain areas will see snow showers with 1-2" possible.
Behind that front on Saturday, morning clouds will give way to afternoon sunshine, and temperatures will be cooler in the low to mid 40's. Breezy northwesterly winds will have eliminated the temperature inversions, but it will be especially windy from around Mountain Home eastward into the Magic Valley, where gusts may reach 30 mph.
Dry Sunday but increasing clouds as a larger, stronger low pressure system heads into the Pacific Northwest. Highs in Boise will again reach the low to mid 40's, and by Sunday night, another round of scattered rain and snow in the valleys, with snow showers developing earlier in the day in the mountains. The rain/snow will likely change to wet snow overnight into Monday morning, and it may impact the Monday morning commute. Up to an inch of snow is possible along the I-84 corridor, with several inches in the mountains. Boise will be colder with a high of 36 degrees.
Tuesday will be dry and colder in the low 30's with morning lows in the teens. The cold, unsettled weather will continue through the week, with highs in the 30's and occasional snow showers.
