...SNOW SHOWERS MAY CREATE DIFFICULT DRIVING CONDITIONS OVER
PORTIONS OF SE IDAHO THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...

A storm system is expected to pass just south of Idaho Thursday
and exit to the east Friday. As a result, rain and snow showers
are expected to develop late this afternoon and early evening
along the Interstate Corridor from Coldwater to Pocatello,
changing to snow after sunset tonight. Snow showers are then
expected to expand north and east along the Interstate 15 corridor
Thursday, with additional snow showers developing for the
Sawtooths by late Thursday. The combination of falling snow and
falling temperatures may cause any wet roads to become slushy and
icy tonight into Thursday morning, with some lingering icy roads
into Friday. At this time the heaviest snow is expected across the
Sawtooths and the benches east of Pocatello, where 1 to 4 inches
of snow with locally higher amounts will be possible. Confidence
is low with regards to locations and amounts of snowfall, so
continue to follow future forecasts for any updates on the
location of expected heaviest snowfall. In addition, gusty north
winds developing on Thursday may create blowing and drifting snow,
particularly along Interstate 15 from Dubois to Monida.
