Treasure Valley residents may not see precipitation until Wednesday, but roads could still be slick due to cold temperatures and fog, according to the National Weather Service.
The high Monday is predicted to be 31 degrees, but the low could be 22 degrees. Those freezing temperatures mean commuters should take it easy on their drive into work, said Dave Groenert, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.
“Anything that looks wet could be ice,” he said.
But a couple systems could push into the valley starting Wednesday, bringing potential rain and snow. Those systems are also expected to push out lingering inversion, he said.

“That would be our first chance to break out of (inversion) is that storm on Wednesday,” Groenert said.
That storm could bring rain and snow starting in the afternoon and falling through the night. Thursday could see another smaller snow storm, he said.
Those systems could also bring warmer air. The highs toward Wednesday through Friday are expected to be in the high 30s with lows in the high 20s, according to the National Weather Service.
