Expect 'bleh' today, sun break Saturday, more 'bleh'

5:35 a.m. Thursday, January 3, 2019
It was 31 degrees with intermittent snow and rain in Bonners Ferry at 5:05 a.m.; Idaho 511 says Highways in Boundary County are good at the moment, with fair conditions in much of Bonner County and good conditions down to about Lewiston. In Troy, 30 degrees with a light freezing rain at 6:07 a.m.

But, as we head toward sunrise, it could cool down a few degrees and things could get icy and slick with little to no notice, so please be extra alert if you're driving this morning.

In Bonners Ferry, look for intermittent snow and rain throughout the day, diminishing after 5 p.m. but kicking back up after about 10 p.m. Sunrise is scheduled for 7:38 a.m., sunset for 4:02 p.m. and the daytime high should hit 39 degrees at 10 p.m. after hovering around 37 most of the day, then it drops to about 34 in the wee early hours of Friday, and back to about 38 and rain snow mix at about 7 a.m. tomorrow.

In Troy, sunrise arrives at 8:35 a.m. with the temperature hovering right at the freezing point, expect rain and a wintry mix through much of the day with a high of 36 arriving right around noon. Sunset is at 5:01 p.m., the rain lets up overnight with a low of 30 degrees early Friday morning. Expect the rain snow mix to pick up for a few hours beginning around 8 a.m. Friday, with mostly cloudy skies and a high of about 40.

We get a respite from the precip on Saturday across the metro and might see some sunshine, but it clouds back up and returns to winter "bleh" with a frozen mix likely on Sunday and snow into next week, with continued warm temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s and overnight lows in the mid to upper 30s before a slight cool down in the latter part of next week.

As of 5:30 a.m., nothing showing on the metro radar.
