Boise will see a fairly typical January for the week ahead, according to the National Weather Service.
The temperatures will bump up Monday, with a predicted high of 35 degrees and a low of 29 degrees. Those warmer temperatures, which are average for this time of year, will hold through the week. The highs are predicted to be in the mid-30s with the lows predicted to be in the high 20s, according to Stephen Parker, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.
Commuters will also want to take it easy on their drive to work. Light showers could fall over Boise throughout the week, Parker said.
The highest chance for precipitation, either rain or snow, will be late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, he said.
Never miss a local story.
“It's either going to be a wet snow or a very cold rain,” Parker said.
Roads shouldn’t be too slick, though, since the precipitation is expected to accumulate, he said.
“We're going to continue to have a lot of clouds around and occasional light showers,” he said.
The system will keep a mild inversion clinging to the Treasure Valley, but residents could escape a dense fog, Parker said.
“By the end of the week the only thing people might want to see is a bit more sun,” he said.
There will be at least a 20 percent chance of rain or snow every day through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.
