Latah, and Shoshone. In northeast Washington, Spokane.

* Through Wednesday afternoon

* Shoshone... Latah... and Benewah counties: this afternoon through

fall. As much as three quarters of an inch of precipitation will
fall in the form of rain and high elevation snow in Shoshone
County.

* Spokane and Kootenai counties: this afternoon and evening... an
additional tenth to quarter of an inch of precipitation is
expected. Elevations above 2500 feet will likely receive
snow... but lower elevations especially in southern portions of

mix.

* Look for rises on creeks and small streams. Field flooding will
likely occur as well in areas that typically flood in the Spring
due to poor drainage. A cooler and showery weather pattern
Wednesday through the weekend should allow small streams to
recede over the next several days.

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
