CHIEF METEOROLOIST ERIC BRILL – EVENING UPDATE
Monday, January 20th, 2020

Snow and rain showers are expected to move around Southern Idaho over the next 48 hours, with the best chance of precipitation happening on Tuesday afternoon and evening.

The incoming shower activity is associated with a cold front that will not drop temperatures all that much in the coming days. This is more of a precipitation front than that of a temperature front. Of course, not all fronts are created equal, and the typically never resemble each other!

Shower activity got going early Monday afternoon, and will pretty much be on-and-off through Wednesday morning. I’m not expecting any real crazy accumulations of snow for this event, and I actually expect this to be more rain than that of snow for most of the Magic Valley and Mini-Cassia Region. The best chance for snow to occur within those two given areas will be Tuesday evening, but temperatures for Tuesday night/Wednesday morning will only bottom out at 30°. With overnight low temperatures that warm, it is going to be rather tough for accumulating snow to happen. That is a big reason why I don’t expect any real accumulating snow, as well as the fact that it won’t be snowing for a long enough period to really allow it to stick.

Within the Wood River Valley, from the time that you are reading this through Wednesday morning, it is possible that 3-6” of snow falls. This snow is going to be rather wet and heavy, so if you need to shovel it, give yourself plenty of time to do so. I do also anticipate this snow to have a tough time sticking on the roads, as temperatures in the Wood River Valley will be in the 30s for most of the afternoon hours on Tuesday as well. Tuesday night into Wednesday morning will likely have temperatures fall into the 20s and teens, but the moisture/snow looks to be a little bit ahead of those colder temperatures.

Nonetheless, after this event comes-and-goes, quieter weather is anticipated for the PM hours of Wednesday through Saturday. There is a slight chance of snow and rain on Friday, but this doesn’t appear to be all that significant of an event.

The better chance of rain and snow for Southern Idaho appears to be on Sunday afternoon/evening through Monday morning. That is worthwhile to keep an eye on as it gets closer in time. It is worth noting as well that high temperatures for Sunday and Monday will likely be in the upper 30s and lower 40s, and that is tough to really have snow stick/accumulate. Of course, Sunday/Monday is a number of days away, so just make sure you stay tuned to the forecast in the coming days!!
