While new snow is forecast statewide from Thursday through the weekend, the subtropical storm system swirling into Idaho from the Pacific is nudging high temperatures dangerously close to freezing or above freezing at night, which could bring a rain/snow mix in places. Keep an eye on temperatures and snow levels, which will be highly variable.
Continued unsettled weather patterns will prevail through the weekend and early next week statewide. There's a 40-70 percent chance of snow predicted through Wednesday of next week statewide.
