For those of you who walked out to the car or bus stop this morning and thought it was freezing out well, you were only a couple of degrees off.
The temperature in the Boise area at 8 a.m. was 35 degrees, which is actually warmer than it was late Sunday night, when it got down to 28 degrees just before midnight. Some clouds moving into the area warmed it up just a little bit.
Just be thankful it wasnt Sunday morning, when the temperatures dipped to 18 degrees in the Boise area. The culprit is a cold air mass from Canada that parked over the Treasure Valley over the weekend, according to National Weather Service reports.
A front moving through the Treasure Valley should result in warmer, more seasonable temperatures (highs in the lower 50s) for the rest of the week, starting Tuesday. For Monday, the high may only reach 41 degrees, with some light snow possible this afternoon. (For comparison, the regular high temperature for Nov. 12 is 50 degrees).
As of 8 a.m., it was too dry to snow or rain in the Boise area but that may change by Monday afternoon. If it does snow, it wont be a lot, and that may change to rain as the afternoon goes on, according to National Weather Service reports. The chance of precipitation for Monday is about 40 percent.
There is a 20 percent chance of rain on Tuesday. After that, expect partly sunny skies until Friday, when there is a 30 percent chance of rain, according to National Weather Service reports.
