Southern Idaho remains storm-free for the foreseeable future

Flurries possible in the central mountains
Posted at 3:23 PM, Jan 12, 2022

Our dry weather pattern is locked in for the intermountain west. Don't expect any real snow for at least a week and likely longer.

Valley temperatures will continue to drop into the 20s in the morning and mid to possibly upper-30s in the afternoon into mid-next week.

The central mountains may see some snow showers and dusting of snow Thursday night into Friday morning but this will only be a weak disturbance.

The next threat for snow will be in about a week when a couple of inches of snow is possible in the central mountains.

The snowpack is at 25% ABOVE normal for the Boise Basin. That is down from 33% when the snow ended. This does not mean the snowpack is melting, it means that we are not keeping up with the average. We lose 1-3% every day that it does not snow. It is possible the Boise Basin will back down to normal (100% of normal) by the time the snow starts to fly again.

It is certainly possible that once the weather pattern shifts back stormy for the west, we could see significant snow in February.
