Boise, get ready for snowy Monday commute; up to 6 inches expected at Bogus Basin

Bogus got about 5 inches of new snow late Saturday and early Sunday.

A storm out of the northwest is expected to bring about an inch of snow to the Treasure Valley early Monday morning — but it could dump as much as 2 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

The Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for 11 p.m. Sunday until 11 a.m. Monday. The snow is expected to begin falling in the Boise area between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m., a meteorologist said.

The mountains will get 2 to 4 inches, with the peaks receiving as much as a half foot. Idaho City is expected to get 2 inches, while McCall may get as much as 3 inches.

The high temperature in Boise Monday will be in the upper-30s, and highs the rest of the week will be in the upper-20s. Winds should be strong enough to prevent an inversion from setting up; if there's fog, it will be patchy not widespread.

There could be light snow showers in the Valley late in the week, and significant snowfall in the mountains next weekend.

What about sunshine?

We might see the sun in the afternoon Monday, after the snow showers clear. Forecasters say Tuesday looks like it will be mostly sunny.
