...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.

...Areas of Dense Fog Possible Early This Morning...

Much of the region has become saturated early this morning, but
clouds are expected to remain over most of the region through
daybreak. Despite the cloud cover, dense fog has already
developed in a few isolated locations. Therefore, it is likely
that areas of dense fog will continue to develop across the region
through sunrise.

Motorists early this morning should slow down and be prepared for
rapid loss of visibility when they encounter an area of dense fog.
Visibilities will likely drop to well under a quarter mile at
times. The dense fog is likely to be most widespread along
Interstate 64 in southern Illinois. Conditions should improve
around 9 AM.

If the dense fog becomes widespread, a Dense Fog Advisory may be
needed for all or a portion of the region later this morning.

...Elevated Fire Weather Danger Today...

Dry southwesterly flow will bring very warm temperatures to the
area today as relative humidity values decrease to 25 to 30
percent this afternoon. Criteria-level RH values will be brief,
and coupled with sustained wind speeds of only 10 to 15 mph during
this time, have held off on any headlines for today. Regardless,
extremely dry surface fuels in combination with ample sunshine and
low humidity will lend to elevated fire weather danger today.
Outdoor burning is therefore strongly discouraged. Conditions will
improve tomorrow as low level moisture returns to the area.
