Boise residents are coming out of a cold weekend into a cold week, according to the National Weather Service.
The high Sunday only got up to 16 degrees, with a low around 10 degrees.
The temperature will creep up a bit during the week, but lows will stay in the teens and highs won’t get above the low 20s, according to Les Colin with the National Weather Service. The high Monday is predicted to be 19 degrees with a low of 13 degrees.
The week will also stay pretty dry, with only one slight chance of snow on Monday, he said.
Never miss a local story.
“It's a weak chance,” he said. “We have another wave coming through here Wednesday, and we're not forecasting snow yet but it (may happen).”
New Year’s Eve is predicted to be colder than last year’s, Colin said. The low could be as frigid as 5 degrees while residents wait for the potato to drop, Colin said.
But, commuters will have a bit of a break. Since it’ll be so cold, there won’t be any warm-ups that melt ice and cause slick roads. Though drivers should take it easy, conditions should be fairly good, Colin said.
An inversion also set in across the Treasure Valley over the weekend since cold air is sticking close to the ground. Colin recommended residents refrain from burning trash, using a wood stove or idling vehicles to prevent pollutants from sticking.
Bogus Basin still has all of its trails open with 61 inches at the base, according to the ski report. As of Sunday the resort has seen 99 inches of snow.
