It seems like a calm, sunny day; but all of that is about to change this afternoon!

 

Forecasters say thunderstorms and winds that could reach speeds up to 50 MPH will be hitting the Treasure Valley at around 4 p.m. today!

 

Blowing dust could also reduce visibility, so be really careful as you are driving.

 

The storm is in eastern Oregon right now and should be past us around midnight.

 

According to the Idaho Statesman, this storm will drop our temperatures into the mid 80's over the next few days and then we'll warm back up into the 90's once we reach the weekend.

 

Say safe and use caution if you plan to be outside this evening.
