Snow dumped in the central Idaho mountains this weekend, but Bogus Basin did not fare as well, receiving less than four inches.
It was too warm, it was 48 degrees here this morning, said George Skari with the National Weather Service Boise office.
A cold front just moved into the area, but most of the moisture is gone.
The mountains north of Bogus, areas around Brundage and Sun Valley, are still getting significant snow, Skari said. The good news for Bogus is there are more storm systems coming in this week.
Bogus Basins forecast this week calls for a 30 to 40 percent chance of snow with temperatures in the teens.
In the Valley, it will be windy and cooler on Monday with a high near 43 degrees. Overnight the temperature will drop to about 23 degrees with a slight chance of rain and snow showers. Tuesdays forecast calls for a 20 percent chance of snow with a daytime high near 30 degrees dropping to around 19 degrees Tuesday night.
Another sure sign winter weather has arrived: Idaho 21s avalanche alley was closed Monday morning after more than a foot of snow accumulated over the weekend and another foot of snow is expected to fall Monday. The Idaho Transportation Department had closed the stretch for a few hours Monday morning.
The notorious 12-mile section between the Grandjean junction turnoff and Banner summit is home to about 60 avalanche chutes and 90 percent of the avalanches in the state that affect highways.
During avalanche season last year, there were eight closures between Nov. 1 and March 31, totaling 21.5 days. A total of 50 slides tumbled down on the highway during that time.
