- NWS Radar for SW Idaho at 8 a.m., Dec. 6.
Boiseans woke up to a blanket of white and area ski resorts got particularly excited as they're still hoping to open slopes at Bogus Basin, Brundage and Tamarack this coming weekend.
That said, precipitation, sub-freezing temperatures and an already cold roadway led to scores of spin-offs and crashes around the Treasure Valley. Interstate 84 between Meridian and Nampa slowed to a crawl just before sunrise. As many as nine separate crashes were reported between milepost 32 and Meridian Road.
Boise police reported city driving conditions weren't too bad, but quickly added that motorists should leave a few minutes early.
