In the Santa Clause film franchise, the actor Martin Short portrays the personification of dreadful, winter weather, which includes all the frigid elements. He's the perfect character to use as a model for the next two weeks of weather in southern Idaho.
This week marks the first time in several months that the Magic Valley will see evening temperatures dropping below 40-degrees. Frozen windshields, slick roads, and logs on the fire will all be routine additions to life for the next six months or so.
The 2021 Easter weekend outlook for the Magic Valley is one of the warmest I can recall in recent years. That is, unless the southern Idaho weather does what we all know it's capable of doing in the next few days.
For those that can't get out of town this weekend, it's looking like the grassy hills near the Twin Falls City Pool, or the College of Southern Idaho grounds, might be ideal for some local sledding for the youngsters.
