Round two: Storm downs trees, causes power outages in Boise

Another storm rolled through the Treasure Valley Wednesday evening, bringing heavy wind gusts. Downed trees have been reported and thousands are without power.

BOISE, Idaho — A round of storms is rolling through the Treasure Valley Wednesday evening, bringing heavy wind gusts for the second-straight day. Following Tuesday's downpour that left standing water in downtown Boise, the National Weather Service is reporting downed trees in the area.

Some trees have been knocked down into roads, likely due to extra moisture from Tuesday's rain that brought nearly 2 inches of precipitation to the area. 1.75 inches of rain was measured at Albertsons Stadium on the Boise State University campus following Tuesday's storm.

Additionally, Idaho Power's outage map shows thousands of customers are without power shortly after 6:15 p.m. Wednesday. The map showed one outage north of Kristin Armstrong Municipal Park in Boise's East End is impacting more than 1,500 customers. 

Another outage near Falcon Crest Golf Club in Kuna from Wednesday's storm impacted nearly 7,000 Idaho Power customers. There are several other outages across the Treasure Valley impacting up to 1,000 people. The latest outage information can be found on Idaho Power's map.

More isolated storms are possible Thursday, but Friday will likely see the most widespread precipitation of the week with off-and-on showers and thunderstorms across the region. Temperatures will moderate back down closer to average by the start of the weekend, then warm up slightly Sunday into Monday.
