What a weekend! We saw rain, snow and windy conditions thanks to a large low pressure system in the NE Pacific. That system has featured a lot of moisture which we've seen plenty of these past few days. Friday was the wettest day as you can see by the totals below:
Twin Falls - .40"
Twin Falls - .10"
That same system dropped heavy snow in the Sun Valley area. Here is the Bald Mountain snow report as of Monday, December 3rd.
Past 24 Hours: 10"
In the valleys it wasn't as wet on Sunday but it was an eventful wind day as a cold front pushed through. Look at some of these maximum wind gusts that were recorded around the area on Sunday.
One more system is on the way in for tomorrow and Wednesday - and this one looks very wet. Tomorrow will start dry and then precipitation chances increase throughout the day. It will be all rain in the valleys with more snow above 7,000 feet. Here is what futurecaster has it looking like at 10 p.m. tomorrow:
This system will taper off into Wednesday afternoon and then we see a quiet stretch of weather heading into the weekend.
Although these storms make for difficult driving conditions you have to admit it they also leave behind some great scenery. This picture was sent to us by Kathy Thomas and it is of the mountains north of the Magic Reservoir:
