Boise residents can expect showers and a chance of snow

Cold showers are expected to roll in over the Treasure Valley Monday and Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

“We'll have showers probably starting just before the (Monday) commute and lasting through most of the morning and early afternoon,” said meteorologist Josh Smith.

By Tuesday, Boise residents could even possibly see snow, he said.

“There is a possibility that we could see some snowflakes,” Smith said. “It'll be cold enough Tuesday morning, but the question is whether there will actually showers around.”

If there is snow, it would be ahead of schedule for the Treasure Valley. The average date for the first snow of the year is Nov. 22, he said.

The surrounding mountains could see some accumulation over the next couple days. Bogus Basin can expect about 5 inches between Monday and Tuesday, Smith said.

The high Monday is predicted to be 46 degrees and the low could be 32 degrees. Tuesday could bring a high of 45 degrees with a low of 26 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
