IDAHO FALLS — Another strong Pacific storm system will arrive in eastern Idaho on Thursday and last into Friday.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the following counties: Butte, Clark, Fremont, Teton, Caribou, Franklin, Onieda, Bannock, Power, western Madison and western Bonneville.

Heavy snow is predicted in the region with accumulations of 3 to 6 inches and up to 12 inches in some areas. The heaviest snowfall will be at higher elevations.

As with the last several storms, the valleys and lowers elevation areas — including Rexburg, Idaho Falls and Pocatello — will avoid most of the snowfall.

Similar winter weather conditions are being reported in northern Utah and northern Nevada during the same period.

The snow could make travel difficult on several highways, particularly along the Wyoming and Montana borders and in mountain passes.
