Isolated mountain snow showers for Sunday with lots of rain and snow for the work week
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy conditions are in store for the rest of the night across all of eastern ID and western WY with only stray light snow showers across our mountain tops. Winds will be light between 5-10 mph. Low temperatures go down to the 10's and single digits.
TOMORROW: Groups of isolated snow showers will cross over our local mountains for Sunday with only one or two of those snow showers reaching the valleys. Winds will be mostly light between 5-15 mph. High temperatures get into the 30's.
LONG TERM: Widespread valley snow and rain showers come into the region starting Monday morning and will stay with us all the way up until Wednesday afternoon. Mountains should expect only snow showers. Snowfall accumulation after Wednesday shows about an inch to 4 inches in the valleys, 4 inches to a foot in valleys around the mountains, and a foot to a foot and a half of snow for the mountains. Dry conditions follow for everyone for Thursday and Friday before more chances for rain and snow are back for next weekend. Winds will be breezy for Tuesday and Wednesday between 15-25 mph. High temperatures will increase into the upper 30's and lower 40's for the beginning of the week before cooling down to the low to mid 30's by the end of the week.
