Boise forecast: Light snow during the week — and good dumping on weekend

newsroom@idahostatesman.comFebruary 5, 2014 

The forecast calls for snowflakes.

Light snow flurries began falling in the Treasure Valley around midnight, and the snow has continued on and off all Wednesday morning. The flurries are expected to dissipate around 1 p.m., according to a forecaster at the National Weather Service.

Expect more of the same all week, as frigid temperatures and flurries will stick around until the weekend. The big event will be Saturday, when Boise may see up to 2 inches of snow and Bogus Basin will likely get 2 to 3 inches.

The high in Boise Wednesday will reach about 25. It will be a bit warmer on Thursday, when the high could reach 30. Prepare for overnight lows in the teens.

At 10:30 a.m., only a trace of snow was measured at the Boise Airport. But a forecaster said there is .125 inches up to .5 inches of snow accumulated on some Valley roads.
