The National Weather Service in Spokane has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
rain and snowmelt in...
Bonner County in the Panhandle of Idaho...
Boundary County in the Panhandle of Idaho...
Shoshone County in the Panhandle of Idaho...
Stevens County in northeastern Washington...
Ferry County in northeastern Washington...
central Spokane County in northeastern Washington...
Pend Oreille County in northeastern Washington...

* until noon PDT Saturday

* recent rain and snow melt will result in increased runoff with
areas of small stream flooding... as well as field flooding.
Flooding will continue to remain a threat for many area
lakes... including Davis... Williams... eloika... and Newman. Our
unusually wet and snowy winter has raised the water table
unusually high over north Idaho and a large portion of Washington.
Flooding is ongoing in many areas. This includes the Colville
river going over Highway 395. Additional rainfall is likely today,
Friday, and again next Monday. Friday looks to be the wettest
storm system of the next 5 days.

* The saturated ground has produced conditions ripe for landslides
and debris flows on steep slopes around the area. Residents with
homes on or at the base of hillsides should be aware of the
potential for landslides and watch for trees leaning in unusual
orientations... water and mud seepage where not expected and other
signs of potential ground movement.

* In addition to small stream and field flooding... the Spokane
river... St. Joe river... and lake Coeur D'Alene will continue
to experience flooding this week.

* Additional mudslides or Road washouts are possible as well.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
