UPDATE: The Winter Weather Advisory in place for much of southern Idaho has been expanded to include Ada County. The advisory now calls for 2-3" of snow in the Boise metro area, with 2-4" possible in areas east of that. However, at the rate the snow is falling, I personally wouldn't be surprised if some areas see more than that. This storm should largely target areas to our south and east through the afternoon, although being right on the brink has proved we're not completely out of the woods.
We'll see scattered snow showers through the day today, with highs right around freezing. The Winter Weather Advisory will expire at 5 PM tonight for Ada County. After this, we're done with the snow for several days. Aside from a few lingering flurries tonight (and maybe tomorrow morning) expect clearing skies for Tuesday as a drying trend kicks in. High pressure will take control, and we'll see drier, colder air settle in place. With this, the ingredients are there for an inversion to form.
More on the Winter Weather Advisory: A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Southwest Highlands and Magic Valley. The Magic Valley could see 3-7" of snow with locally up to 9", while the SW Highlands could see 2-6" of snow. Blowing and drifting snow is also likely in those areas, so heads up if your travels take you in that direction today.
