CHIEF METEOROLOGIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE - Sunday, February 5, 2023

A winter weather advisory continues for the South Hills of Cassia County through 8 AM on Monday {2/6/2023}. The anticipation is that this region could collect another 2-4″ of snow, although some of the peaks could add another 5″ of snow. If you are traveling through the South Hills, Wood River Valley or any higher elevation locations on Monday, use caution and take it slow!

While some showers will hang around Southern Idaho (although, they will mainly be within the South Hills) on Monday, drier weather conditions are expected more often than not over the next week.

Beyond 10 AM, I do expect dry conditions to be in place around Southern Idaho, except into the South Hills. The commute to work and/or school on Monday morning could be a little bit slick out there, so be aware of that as you head out the door. This shouldn’t be a widespread issues or one that cause drastic issues, especially if you utilize caution and give yourself just a little bit of extra time. Temperatures will fall a few degrees moving into Monday, and breezy weather conditions won’t make it feel exactly fantastic, either. The good news is that it still shouldn’t feel as cold as what we saw a week ago.

For Tuesday, foggy conditions during the morning will be the biggest issue. The Northern Magic Valley will have some dense fog within it, which means reduced visibility values will be around. Some of that fog will likely sneak into parts of the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there is some fog to the north of Highway 20. If you live in an area that usually sees fog during the Wintertime, I feel pretty safe in saying you’ll see some on Tuesday.

Breezy weather conditions for Wednesday should minimize the fog a bit, but some isolated showers are a possibility. These showers aren’t expected to add up to very much at all, but hold the best chance of shower activity after Monday morning comes ang goes. This is due to a cold front that will allow temperatures to slip into the 30s for the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region, while the Wood River Valley can expect some 20s.

Beyond Wednesday, temperatures will slowly start to climb back on up, as more sunshine will be able to develop itself. It isn’t going to be too particularly warm as next weekend rolls around, but for February standards, it won’t get much better than what the forecast holds! Temperatures will be in the lower 40s throughout the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region, while the Wood River Valley can expect middle to lower 30s. Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies are within the forecast from Thursday into at least the weekend, so we will take that!

Overall, the next seven days of weather around Southern Idaho look to be rather quiet. Hopefully that isn’t a sign of things to come, as while that snowpack is above average, it won’t take too many dry days to see that slip below average. Fingers crossed that the end of February will be a little bit wetter!
