Ugly Wintry Mix Triggers Slide-offs, But Sunshine is on the Way

Posted By on Wed, Jan 29, 2014 at 10:09 AM

A treacherous mix of snow, ice and rain defined the Treasure Valley morning commute today, with sections of Interstate 84 and U.S. Highway 95 closed for brief periods of time due to slide-offs and wrecks.

A winter weather advisory for snow and freezing rain remains in effect until 5 p.m. today, as a glaze of ice and freezing rain is expected to hamper the afternoon commute as well.

A number of the region's school districts decided to cancel or delay classes Wednesday, including the Adrian, Baker, Homedale, Marsing, Nyssa, Parma and Vale school districts. Additionally, Mountain Home Air Force Base alerted its personnel that it was on a two-hour delay this morning.

The National Weather Service Office in Boise is forecasting more freezing rain through the night and a mix of snow and rain for Thursday and Friday, with temperatures near freezing. The true highlight, however, is Saturday's forecast, which calls for mostly sunny skies and a high of 36 degrees. More sunshine is expected Sunday as well.
