2:30 Update: I-84 to the Utah border has reopened to traffic.

Idaho Falls City spokeswoman,Kerry McCullough, responded to us when asked about issuing a snow proclamation to clear residential street. She said, “We do not anticipate issuing a snow proclamation at this point. The street department does have extra crews and equipment out right now to clear up the roads for the holiday and last minute shoppers. They are focused primarily on the main and secondary roads so drivers have safe routes around town.”

2:17 pm Update: US Highway 30 has reopened to traffic going both directions.

2 pm Update: US Highway 89 is closed going both directions from Ovid to the Utah border. Drifting and blowing slow has made conditions too dangerous for drivers.

High winds with gusts up to 45 mph in the southeast highlands are causing drifting and low visibility.

Interstate 84 is also closed between the I-86 interchange and the Utah border.
