LATE SEASON SNOW STORMS BATTER IDAHO
Moscow--A late, April-Fools day snowstorm has buried the Palouse under seven inches of snow. Snow is also reported in Pocatello and Idaho Falls with rain in Boise and Twin. The storms and cool temps continue to add to mountain snowpack totals while precipitation levels still lag behind normal readings.
"Before this snowstorm I heard one of the farmers say he didnt expect to get out until May 1st, you hardly see storms like this in April, nothing this big," said Idaho Farm Bureau's Bob Smathers. "Our guys say they have plenty of water, they just want dry ground now."
