Despite more than an inch of overnight snowfall, commuting conditions Friday morning were better than on Thursday, when slick roads produced numerous crashes.
Fog set in around sunrise in the Treasure Valley Friday, and that kept temperatures high enough to ward off icy roadways, National Weather Service meteorologist Les Colin said.
Saturday will likely see more snow in the early morning, but that is predicted to turn into slush and rain, Colin said.
“It'll be a little warmer: We could get a half-inch of snow or slush and then it'll be rain,” he said.

Saturday’s high temperature could get up to 41 degrees with a low of 30 degrees, the National Weather Service reports. Sunday likely won’t get into freezing temperatures with a high in the low 40s and a low in the mid-30s.
Sunday’s precipitation will mirror Saturday’s, with slush in the morning and rain off-and-on throughout the day, Colin said.
