A cold winter storm has moved into the Treasure Valley today and will move out of the area by Thanksgiving morning. This storm could generate 1-2" of inches of snow for the valley and up to 6” for some of the local mountains. However, the core of the storm will pass through south central Idaho creating dangerous winter conditions between Mountain Home and Twin Falls. 4-7” of snow are possible there. We’ll see partly cloudy to mostly sunny Friday and Saturday with dry conditions, but it will be very cold with highs in the 20’s.

Beautiful sites at the Sawtooth mountain range during the end of summer. Mt. McGowen is easily viewed not far from Stanley, at Stanley lake. The viewpoint of the whole Sawtooth range is located several miles south of Stanley. The Salmon River winds along the Highway in front of the range.
These are pretty places in the farm country west of Boise.
