WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH MONDAY MORNING:

  • WHAT…Heavy wet snow possible. Total snow accumulations of a coating to 3 inches below about 7,000 feet, with 3 to 12 inches above about 7,000 feet and locally higher amounts near peaks and ridges. Winds could gust as high as 35 MPH with localized blowing snow, especially as you increase in elevation.
  • WHERE…Portions of the Idaho central mountains, including but not limited to the Frank Church Wilderness, Banner Summit, Sawtooth Mountains, Galena Summit, the Big Lost Highlands, and Lost River Range.
  • WHEN…From Sunday afternoon through Monday morning.
  • IMPACTS…While slick conditions and light accumulations may occur down into Stanley, Ketchum, and Sun Valley during this event, the greatest concern for very difficult travel will exist over Galena Summit, as well as for local and backcountry roads above about 7,000 feet. The Monday morning commute will likely be impacted. In addition, the heavy, wet nature of the snow may strain weaker structures and tree limbs.
