Winter Weather Advisory

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Boise ID
253 AM MST Wed Feb 22 2017

...Winter Weather Advisory for snow issued for the Southwest
Highlands, Southern Twin Falls county, and part of the Western
Magic Valley...

.A Pacific storm system will move east across northern California
and then along the Idaho/Nevada border today through Thursday.
This will bring moisture and lift to support moderate snow across
southeast Oregon and parts of southwest and southcentral Idaho
today through Thursday. Snowfall will begin this morning across
southeast Oregon and the Southwest Highlands of Idaho. Snow will
move into Southern Twin Falls county and the southeast part of the
Western Magic Valley (generally south and east of a line from
Buhl to Jerome) late this afternoon and continue through Thursday
morning.

Although moderate snow will fall in the higher elevations of
southeast Oregon, surface temperatures above freezing will limit
accumulation at lower elevations, and therefore no advisory has
been issued for southern Malheur or Harney counties. Please be
aware that the higher elevations in those areas will receive 2 to
6 inches of snow, with 10 inches possible on the top of Steens
Mountain.
