A winter storm system will move through the region overnight through Monday. With this storm system, we will see frozen precipitation here in the Treasure Valley, mainly in Ada County and points further south and east. This isn't a major storm and little accumulation is expected in the upper valley with up to an inch possible in the Boise area and 1-2" along the Interstate south of Boise to Mountain Home. The storm will move through overnight and exit Monday afternoon. Showers are expected to be over by the noon hour for the lower valleys but could continue into the afternoon for some mountain locations. Temperatures are expected to rebound each day back into the low 40's for highs. More storms are lined up for next week and we can expect to see showers again by the middle of the week and then possibly again over the weekend.
