There was a collective sigh of relief around the Valley on Thursday with the sun's first appearance in a couple of weeks. Now it's time to cross your fingers in hopes the sun sticks around awhile.

The National Weather Service is predicting partly to mostly sunny skies through the weekend and even into next week. A chance of snow showers Friday morning will give away to sunny skies and a high temperature of 41 degrees. A dense fog layer moved into Boise around 7:30 a.m. and has the potential to impact the morning commute for many Treasure Valley motorists.

Saturday also will begin with clouds overhead, but they're again expected to burn off as the day progresses, with the high temperature eventually reaching 38 degrees.

Sunday through Tuesday will be sunny with daytime highs in the mid- to upper 30s, according to the Weather Service.

And in case you missed it, here's a peek at the buzz on social media Thursday when the sun finally poked through the clouds over the Treasure Valley.
