IDAHO FALLS — All winter weather advisories have expired in eastern Idaho as of Sunday, Dec. 17.

There is a slight chance for snow in some areas this evening, however, today will be mostly sunny with areas of freezing fog throughout the day.

Air quality advisory

An air quality advisory remains in effect in Franklin County due to elevated pollutant levels in the air. A stable atmosphere with little wind is preventing pollutants from drifting outside the area. As a result, residential wood burning restrictions have been put in place inside the county until at least noon Monday.

Individuals with inherent sensitivity to increased particulate levels are encouraged to avoid prolonged physical exertion outside. At these levels there is an increasing likelihood of respiratory symptoms and increased aggravation of asthma and/or lung ailments, according to NWS officials.
