Boise could see snow Saturday night

November 15, 2013 

— Ready for winter weather? You’re in luck.

Saturday night will bring a 30 percent chance of snow to Boise, according to the National Weather Service.

The flakes will be mixed with a cold rain, meteorologists say. The rain will start Friday night, when there's an 80 percent chance of precipitation and a low of just above freezing. Saturday will bring off-and-on rain showers.

But as temperatures drop to a chilly 29 degrees Saturday night, the rain will mix with snow. That will make for a cold night for those attending Boise State’s home game against Wyoming. With an 8:15 p.m. kickoff, fans will likely catch the beginning of the snowfall that is slated to start at 11 p.m. Few of the flakes are expected to stick to the ground.

The skies will clear Sunday, but the temperature won't increase much. Sunday's forecast high is 45 degrees, which will drop to 28 degrees overnight. The beginning of next week should be clear as well, with temperatures reaching the high 40s and little chance of precipitation.
