Idaho Falls, Idaho

While we’re still waiting for winter to make SOME appearance here in the Upper Midwest (thankfully we only have to wait 1-2 more days until we get it), let’s go take a look at a place where it’s already made its’ presence felt, Idaho!

At 735pm MST, the temperature in Idaho Falls, ID was 34 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. A broad, low pressure system is snaking its way through the Rockies bringing decent mountain snows to Wyoming and Utah. This is the system that will eventually eject into the Plains and give our neck of the woods our first big snowstorm of the season. It’s keeping a few lingering snow showers in the region, but will continue to dissipate as the storm system departs the area. High pressure will be settling in over the area as we push through Thursday, causing the clouds over the area to slowly break up through the afternoon and evening hours. Temperatures will take a noticable dip into the mid-teens for Friday morning, but bright sunshine for the day will cause them to rebound to around 40. Overall, not too shabby for the end of the workweek!
