It appears Mother Nature is going to give Boise area gardeners a break on Monday morning.

There may be frost in some pockets of the Valley, but it's not expected to be widespread, the National Weather Service says. The low at the Boise Airport on Sunday morning was 41 degrees, and the forecast shows Monday morning's low will be about 38 degrees. Overnight lows the rest of the week will be in the 40s and 50s.

Sunday was dry after three days with measurable rain — about a half inch fell in Boise from Thursday through Saturday. On Saturday morning, wet snow was reported in the Boise Foothills at about 3,200 feet (the airport is at 2,868 feet).

Winds were strong Sunday, with gusts up to 40 mph recorded at the airport just after 5 p.m. The high Sunday was 67, and Monday will be about the same, a Weather Service meteorologist said. We'll be into the 80s by the end of the week.
