Hazardous weather conditions shut down Interstate 84 between the Interstate/I-84 Junction to the Utah state line 6 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Idaho Transportation Department. ITD closed the roadway due to low visibility from drifting snow. They will divert traffic to I-86 to Pocatello and then Interstate 15 on to Utah, according to ITD.
Snow is expected to fall Christmas Eve in the Treasure Valley during the afternoon, Anderson said. Then the Treasure Valley will dry out and start to get colder through the weekend, Anderson said.
