...Mixed rain and snow expected in southeast Idaho Sunday night through Tuesday night...

Change in southeast Idaho weather is expected the next few days with moist flow off the Pacific moving inland. This pattern will bring three small disturbances through this area.

The first disturbance will bring 2 to 5 inches of snow above 5500 feet tonight into Monday. Any accumulation should be limited to less than an inch on the valley floors with East Bench areas of the snake plain receiving 1 to 2 inches.

There will be a brief break late Monday morning into the early afternoon before the next disturbance moves into the area Monday afternoon through Tuesday. The third disturbance will move in Tuesday afternoon through Tuesday evening. Expect breezy winds and slightly higher snow levels with these two disturbances. Between these two disturbances expect 5 to 8 inches of snow across the central mountains and southern Highlands above 6000 feet. Look for 8 to 12 inches of snow across the eastern Highlands above 6000 feet. Lower elevations will likely just see rain throughout these disturbances as snow levels stay elevated.
