The patter of rain on the roof was enough to wake some Treasure Valley residents Sunday morning. Heavy rain fell from about midnight until 4 a.m., with about 0.34 inches recorded at the airport, according to the National Weather Service.

The rain tapered off after 4 p.m., but it's been raining on and off all day. A trace was recorded at the airport at 9 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.

While Boise got rain, Bogus got snow — 3 inches, according to the ski area's snow report.

It's going to be a wet week, with a chance of rain every day. The skies may clear up Friday and Saturday, but that won't last for long, forecasters say.

The high Sunday was expected to reach about 52 degrees, and the forecast for Monday is 54.

February turned out to be a wetter than normal month, with 2.22 inches of precipitation recorded — about 1.23 inches more than normal.

We're right on track for the water year, with 5.95 inches falling between Oct. 1 and March 1. That's slightly ahead of the normal of 5.92 inches. The heavy rain Sunday morning will bring the total up to 6.29 inches.
