Snow accumulations are likely to range from 2-4 inches from Shoshone to Stanley including Carey, Bellevue, Hailey, Ketchum, and Sun Valley. Up to 8 inches of new accumulation is possible near Ridgetop level. As we progress into Monday afternoon, well see our chance of snow turn to a chance rain/snow mix in the lower valleys while that chance of snow persists in the mountains and higher elevations. Rain/snow mix will be possible in the lower valleys due to warmer temperatures, as highs are expected to be above freezing in the mid to upper 30s, while in the Wood River Valley highs will hover around freezing.
