Maybe it's because we are used to it or because we had it way worse last month, but the warm front that moved through Southwest Idaho overnight, dropping almost two inches of snow in the Boise area, was greeted with a communal shrug.
Most people drove to work with no issues. All schools were open. Kids walked to class with little problem.
The National Weather Service measured 1.8 inches of snow at the Boise Airport Friday morning. By 9 a.m. the snow was over. It looks like the snow was heaviest in the east Boise area, while some areas in the western Treasure Valley only got about a half-inch.
The roads temperatures in Boise didnt seem to get below freezing, so the snow mostly just melted when it hit the pavement, according to National Weather Service reports.
The snow was the result of a big low pressure system over Nevada that stretched into Idaho and produced low-density but fluffy flakes in the Treasure Valley.
Much of the new snow that remains will likely melt as temperatures in the Boise area are expected to get into the lower 40s by Friday afternoon, according to weather reports.
As for the weekend, expect partly sunny skies with highs in the high 30s to low 40s, with overnight lows in the 20s.
