BOISE, Idaho (CBS 2) — Heavy snow Sunday afternoon into Monday morning left some mountain areas with close to a foot of new snow. A moist Pacific storm system surged through the region over the latter half of the weekend and brought much needed snowfall to our mountain areas. The Treasure Valley also saw a brief burst of snow overnight but temperatures were too warm for any accumulation.
The northern ski resorts saw the most snowfall with Brundage and Tamarack picking up over a foot of fresh powder. In the last 48-hours, Sun Valley and Bogus Basin picked up 5 and 9 inches of new snow, respectively. Other reports that came in show very isolated amounts of heavy snowfall. For example, a weather station near Bellevue reports 16 inches of snow while Sun Valley only had 5 inches.
The City of McCall reports 9 inches overnight while Brundage only picked up 6 inches.
More snow is on the way with another system moving in Tuesday. One downfall to this next storm is that it's another mild system moving in from the southwest, snow levels could rise to 4,500 or 5,500 feet through Wednesday, and precipitation amounts don't look nearly as impressive as our storm from Sunday night. Stay tuned.
