Increasing cloud cover this evening across the region ahead of our next storm system. An unseasonably moist and mild low-pressure system will move into the region early Monday for Southwest Idaho. Precipitation will begin to fall as snow above 5,000 feet but is expected to transition over to rain as warmer air is brought into the area. Snow levels will rise above 10,000 feet by Tuesday afternoon. The heaviest surge of moisture is expected Monday before noon, where widespread showers are expected. Periods of rain will follow in the valleys with rain showers lingering into Tuesday. Highs will be in the mid-40's on Monday and the mid-50's on Tuesday. Mild temperatures will continue through Thanksgiving with dry conditions for Southern Idaho.
