Boise--The National Weather Service office in Boise issued a Winter Storm Warning for Wednesday for nearly all of southern Idaho. The latest update warns as much as 5-10 inches of snow could fall at lower elevations, with three feet or more in the higher elevations.
The snow level will start out at the valley floor level, and rise throughout the day with rain mixing into lower elevations. Snow level by Thursday should be 5,000 feet. Forecasters put the chance of precipitation in the Boise area at 100 percent for Wednesday.
The brunt of the storm is expected Wednesday afternoon and into the evening as a warm front moves over.
After Wednesday, the storm will primarily mean rain for the valley areas and mountain snow. The stormy pattern isn’t expected to let up – with much of the 7 Day Forecast filled with rain and snow icons.
