IDAHO: The state of Idaho continued to have a mild winter. The statewide temperatures in Idaho for the month of January were well above average throughout most of the state. In northern Idaho, thawing temperatures created slush and mud throughout the lower elevations. There was still some snow on the ground in Boundary County; more than a foot in most places. Farther south in Latah and Nez Perce Counties, rainfall removed much of the snow cover from area cropland. In southwest Idaho, the mild weather provided good calving conditions. Good precipitation, mainly in the form of rain, fell at lower elevations. A mix of rain and snow fell in the mountains. A sufficient quantity of all types of hay was available
