The conditions could get worse throughout the day. Snow is in the forecast for Thursday. In an interview with EastIdahoNews.com Wednesday, a meteorologist with the US National Weather Service in Pocatello said she expected snow along I-15 to arrive in the evening.
“I really wouldn’t be surprised if that whole I-15 corridor ends up in the one to three-inch range (with snow),” meteorologist Dawn Harmon said.
The snow on Thursday evening will most likely impact drivers. People can likely expect to see snow falling, starting anywhere between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.
