Snow expected Friday, Saturday

December 19, 2013 

— More snowfall is headed to the Boise area this weekend, according to the National Weather Service

Thursday kicked off with continuing areas of patchy fog, but meteorologists say it should all clear up by 11 a.m. The rest of the day will be clear and cool, with a projected high of 33 degrees.

Temperatures will drop to a chilly 19 degrees at night, however, ushering in Friday snow. There won’t be much, forecasters say–less than half an inch–but with the high never reaching above freezing, it will likely not melt off quickly.

The flurries are expected to hit the Treasure Valley after 11 a.m. Friday, continuing into a cold mix of rain and snow Friday night.

Temperatures will warm up to near 40 degrees on Saturday, but Boiseans could still see some light snow that morning.

It will be gone by Sunday, with predicted sunshine and another high of 39 degrees.

Leading up to Christmas Day, temperatures will remain in the mid to upper 30s.
