More snow expected, flooding issues continue

Flood warnings remained in effect in Bear Lake and Bannock counties on Tuesday, and National Weather Service officials predict even more precipitation to fall in East Idaho into Wednesday.

The weather service issued a winter weather advisory that will remain in effect until 6 p.m. Wednesday for the Upper Snake Highlands, South Central Highlands, Caribou Highlands and Idaho portion of the Wasatch Mountains.

Weather officials said a storm moving through the area could drop between 4 and 9 inches of snow in elevations above 6,000 feet, and between 1 and 3 inches in the mountain valleys.

St. Anthony, Ashton, Island Park, Driggs, Victor, Malad City, Oakley, Rockland, Henry, Soda Springs, Downey, Lava Hot Springs and Montpelier could all be affected, along with Pine Creek Pass, Fish Creek Summit and Georgetown Summit.

Weather officials said the snow could make travel difficult, especially over mountain passes and in backcountry areas.

“Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving,” the advisory stated.

Officials encouraged people to make sure they’re prepared for cold temperatures and snow, and to take measures to protect their gardens.
