UPDATE, Thursday, Feb. 2, 5:30 p.m. -- Dare we say it? More snow is coming to North Central Idaho starting Friday morning, Feb. 3.

According to the National Weather Service (Missoula office), a relatively warm, wet weather pattern will bring prolonged moderate to heavy snow, and a mix of freezing rain/rain/snow for the lower elevations beginning Friday through early next week.

Notable Impacts

  • Moderate to heavy accumulating snow and difficult driving for the terrain above 4,000 - 5,000 feet Friday through at least Tuesday
  • Prolonged snow event for Lolo Pass especially, Friday through at least Tuesday. It is possible the passes/mountain roads could receive several feet of snow during this period.

Details

Friday:

Snow will increase Friday morning across North-Central Idaho. Snow levels will begin rising Friday afternoon/evening, and valley locations will begin to see pockets of freezing rain/sleet and rain through Friday night. Elevations above 4000 - 5000 feet will continue to see periods of moderate to heavy snowfall

Saturday and Sunday:

Snow levels will oscillate throughout the weekend, but low elevation valleys are likely to remain mostly rain. Precipitation will continue to be widespread with little to no breaks.
