Wintry weather remains in the forecast tonight and Wednesday morning for many higher terrain areas across Montana and Idaho. This includes the central Idaho mountains and the #Stanley area. Be prepared for cold, wintry conditions in the back country. Slick travel will be possible on mountain passes overnight, especially Galena and Willow Creek. The wight of the heavy, wet snow will put stress on tress and power lines as well. #idwx #mtwx

🌬We are not a very big "fan" of this forecast either. High winds are expected in several spots today with strong winds across the Snake River Plain, making for difficult driving conditions for high profile vehicles. Slow down and be mindful of cross-winds.

High Winds can cause power outages from blown down power lines or from trees/tree branches fallen on those lines. #idwx

A stormy weekend remains on track across east Idaho. Windy conditions tomorrow will bring hazardous, choppy waters on area waterways, isolated blowing dust and isolated tree and power line damage.

Just a reminder its that time of year to be extra cautious in our activities with fire safety. We have a windy and dry period coming up tomorrow and Saturday. Though fuels are not quite critical, we will reach critical winds (greater than 25 mph in mountains and greater than 30 mph in the Snake Plain) and critical relative humidity (less 15 percent) tomorrow. Saturday there will be even stronger winds though the relative humidity will be higher. #idwx

Outdoor plans this weekend? Another stormy weekend is in store for east Idaho as a strong cold front blasts through on Saturday. Breezy conditions will first develop on Friday, and this will cause some choppy waters on area waterways. By Saturday, those breezy conditions will become windy, creating rough water conditions. Also, strong thunderstorms are possible, especially across the central Idaho mountains. Not to be outdone, mountain snow is looking increasingly possible Sunday above 7,000 feet elevation. #idwx

Hey NWS, This morning around 6:30/6:45am I saw some beautiful "Wave Clouds"with dark clouds behind, above Rupert, while driving West on I86just past Raft River. Unfortunately, due to nature of my job, I was not able to stop and take pictures :( Still thought I let you know.
