Next Weather Maker arrives on Wednesday
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) —
Our storm system this evening is whippy, to say the least, mountain areas are only getting a dusting of new snow. Little impact was expected as most models suggested an inch or two possible at higher elevations, however, snow showers are expected to continue into Monday morning so I suppose it could still happen.
The bigger storm, our next Weather Maker, will arrive on Wednesday to southwest Idaho and should bring a better chance at adding some fresh powder to the slopes. The storm will slide down out of the Gulf of Alaska and into the Pacific Northwest late Tuesday night into Wednesday. Showers are expected by early Wednesday afternoon, for most of the region, with a wintry mix beginning in the lower valleys turning over the rain. Snow levels are expected to be around 3,000 feet for this storm system and some models are suggesting we could see 4-8 inches of new snow at higher elevations, others show a range of 2-4 inches. Either way, that's more snow than we've seen in awhile and many of our local resorts could use a fresh layer of snow.
