Boise residents woke to white front yards and cars after a system dropped almost a half-inch of snow overnight.

A wind advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. Monday for most of Southwest Idaho, according to the National Weather Service.

Winds will be 30 mph, with gusts up to 45 mph. That could make travel hazardous for trucks traveling north and south on Idaho highways.

About .4 inches of snow was measured at the Boise Airport. The ground was not frozen, so most of that will likely melt by noon Monday.

The west side of the Treasure Valley didn’t get any snow, a National Weather Service meteorologist said.

Bogus Basin received about 2 inches, bringing the season total for the ski area to 14 inches. The snow gauge at Bogus showed 5 inches Monday morning.

Boise could see snow flurries late Monday and Tuesday morning but that’s expected to turn to rain with rising temperatures. Other than that, there’s no other snow expected this week.

Highs this week will be in the upper 40s and low 50s.
