The weather forecast has updated a bit and snow looks like less of a possibility, but don't rule it out just yet. It will be a much cooler, windy, and rainy weekend.

It's Been a Beautiful Week, But Don't Count on Spring Just Yet

It's been an awesome week full of sunshine and highs right up against the 70-degree mark. I hope you enjoyed some time in the sun because, according to the weather forecast, we're going to see a good chance of wind and rain on Saturday, and even a possibility of snow as we head into overnight Saturday night and early Sunday.

Could the Twin Falls Area See Snow Over the Weekend?

Sources on the forecast vary, but at the moment, the National Weather Service is predicting a slight chance of snow overnight on Sunday. Rain and wind are expected Saturday morning and possibly Monday and Tuesday afternoon. The temperatures will also drop to the low 50's on Saturday and stay there for for pretty much the next week and a half with a few days of higher temps.


A Look at Next Week

Remember, Idaho weather can turn on a dime so all of this is subject to change, but rain and even a little snow could roll over into next week as well. Continued rain and snow could persist into the early half of next week, with daytime highs dropping to the upper 40s and low 50s.

Don't Turn on Your Sprinklers Quite Yet

For those on city water supply, you might have thought this was a good week to turn on your irrigation water. If I were you, I would hold off until we see consistent overnight temperatures well into the upper 30s, if not the 40s. Turning on the water supply to your irrigation system too soon could lead to freezing temperatures causing damage to your sprinkler system. If you live in a neighborhood that runs off of pressurized irrigation, you'll have to wait until the city charges the irrigation systems, which typically isn't until late April and into early May.

Keep Up to Date on the Latest Forecast

If I want accurate Twin Falls weather, I like to check between the National Weather Service and KMVT. Chief Meteorologist Eric Brill's forecasts don't always align perfectly with the NWS, but more often than not, his attention to local detail is more on point.
