BOISE, Idaho — Another low pressure trough will be bringing more scattered showers to southern Idaho on Thursday. This showery activity should start about mid-morning on Thursday, some of the afternoon showers have the potential to be a little bit stronger. We may see these isolated storms produce a few strikes of lightning, with brief, stronger downpours. Winds are expected to pick up Thursday afternoon and continue into Friday.
The valley rain showers switch to snow as a cold front moves in late Thursday night. Temperatures will reach the low 50's, then drop about ten degrees on Friday behind the front. A rain/snow mix is likely during the morning commute on Friday, possible even up to an inch of wet snow, although it probably will not stick to road surfaces. Mountain valleys are expecting up to 6" of snow through Friday, with the highest elevations seeing up to 12".
Friday and Saturday will remain cold and unsettled with occasional snow showers and highs only reaching the low 40's, with overnight lows in the low 20's. Sunday will be drier as the storm pulls away, but highs will stay in the 40's. More unsettled weather is expected next week with valley rain/snow and mountain snow through the week, with temperatures remaining below average.
