Snow falling on Treasure Valley roads early Monday morning caused few problems for early commuters, emergency dispatchers said. Only a couple of slideoffs or crashes were reported before 7:15 a.m.

A winter weather advisory for the Valley is in effect until 11:15 a.m.

About .10 inches of snow was measured at the Boise Airport at 7 a.m. Current and former forecasters reported 1.5 inches near Caldwell and 2 inches near Horseshoe Bend.

The snow marker at Bogus Basin showed about 4.5 to 5 inches fell overnight at the ski area. That new powder is on top of an inch that fell Saturday. Brundage got 5 inches of snow.

A dispatcher in Idaho City said several inches has accumulated on local roads, and it's still snow.

The temperature in Boise at 7:15 a.m. was hovering at about 33, just above freezing. It's not going to get much warmer — the forecast high is 36.

The rest of the week will be cold, with highs reaching 25 on Wednesday, 26 on Thursday and 20 on Friday. Next weekend may bring another storm that will dump more snow in the mountains.
