Cold and rain headed to the Treasure Valley

December 2, 2013 

— Cold temperatures are headed to the Treasure Valley after an uncharacteristically balmy start to Monday morning.

Temperatures hovered near 50 degrees in Boise before the sun came up Monday. Rainstorms will move through the area later in the day, with meteorologists predicting a 90 percent chance of rain and highs in the 50s.

But as temperatures drop to an estimated 25 degrees Monday night, that precipitation could turn to snow, according to the National Weather Service. The rest of the week is expected to be very cold, with Tuesday marking the only day with a high temperature above freezing.

A 33-degree high Tuesday will plummet to 16 by nighttime. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will see mostly sunny skies and temperatures that top out in the mid-20s and fall to near 10 degrees overnight.

Friday night will bring another shot at snowfall, with cloudy skies and a 20 percent chance of snow showers.
