A Lot More Snow, Rain On the Way to SW Idaho


While many family and friends traveled the region's highways and skyways over a three-day period in order to get to the Thanksgiving table, an overabundance of those same travelers will probably travel today, making this the busiest travel day of the calendar year. Nearly 237,000 Idahoans were expected to travel this weekend, with nearly 204,000 traveling in motor vehicles.

And while the Treasure Valley woke up to bitter cold Sunday morning (it was 5 degrees in Stanley and 7 degrees in McCall), the skies in and around Boise were expected to be sunny on Sunday before another wave of precipitation sweeps into the region. Increasing clouds are expected to build Sunday night, ushering in a chance of snow on Monday, a mix of snow and showers Monday night and rain continuing through mid-week.

More snow is expected in higher elevations, giving operators of Bogus Basin and Brundage resorts some more hope to open sooner than later. The Sun Valley Resort opened for its 79th winter season on Thanksgiving Day.
