Record Highs to Thunder snow

Overnight snow, originally uploaded by Jake Putnam.

A series of violent storms rocked Southern Idaho Wednesday and early Thursday. On Tuesday SW Idaho saw temperatures in the 60's which gave way to high winds, hail, rain and snow. Traffic on the I-84 slowed to a crawl because of heavy ice on the roadways. This series of storms is good news to farmers, Idaho is above average in snowpack and precipitation levels.
