As elsewhere in the Treasure Valley, a storm brought brought gusty winds through Boise Tuesday evening. Branches broke, visibility was hampered for a time - and a tweet claimed that people were floating backwards on the Boise River.

The winds had mostly tapered off by about 7:30 p.m., a little more than an hour after they began.

The storm began a weather transition predicted to hit the Valley in a big way on Wednesday. After several days of highs hovering around 90 or above, the National Weather Service predicts that showers are likely and temperatures will peak in the mid-60s.
