BOISE -- An unusually strong winter storm dropped hail, rain, and snow in parts of the Treasure Valley just after 12 p.m. Wednesday.

A line of thunderclouds scattered pea and marble sized hail in parts of Boise's north end shortly after Noon.

Lightning and rain were seen in other parts of the valley.

KTVB Meteorologist Larry Gebert says scattered showers are expected throughout the afternoon, and should taper shortly after 6 p.m.

Gebert says up to 10 inches of snow will fall at mountain elevations above 7,000 feet.

However, Bogus Basin will likely only see 3 to 4 inches of snow.

The temperature at the Boise Airport dropped 12 degrees in just 15 minutes during Wednesday's storm.
