The snowy conditions and slippery roads led to dozens of slide-offs and traffic incidents on Friday, shutting down the Connector in Boise in the morning and closing I-84 on Friday evening.

A cold front will push through the area this afternoon, ending the steady snow, but leading to breezy conditions with northwest winds 15-30 mph, which may lead to some localized blowing snow issues.  Roads will remain icy.
