The Observatory: What’s happening in snowy Mountain Home Jan. 15-21

Hello Mountain Home!

It’s time for another edition of the Observatory, the one-stop-shop of what’s going on in Mountain Home and the surrounding area for the next week.

This week’s edition will be a little different because of the winter weather that’s currently going on outside.

Mountain Home will be under a winter storm watch from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. today, and we are expected to get between 2-4 or more inches of snow. The amount will depend on how quickly temperatures dropped last night.

You can expect heavier snow bursts later this afternoon. If you decide to go out today, please take caution on the roads as snow and ice may make them slick.

For those staying at home, enjoy the snow! Go make a snowman and have fun with the kids.

Here’s the breakdown of events for next week.
