Flood Watch in Effect for Spokane County: That starts tonight with this next storm system and lasts through the rest of the week as temps continue to warm, and lots of rain in the forecast. The concern isn't so much for larger rivers flooding, but more for clogged storm drains causing minor flooding.

Tuesday: Showers continue to fall over the Central and Southern Panhandle this morning as a cold front pushes SE. That same cold front will dry in some drier air later this morning which could even lead to sun-breaks late morning/early afternoon. The break is brief...tropical moisture moves in tonight. High: 35° (Green)

Tuesday Night: A mixed bag all across the INW as this storm moves in. Rain with some wet snow expected around Spokane, while our counties bordering the Canadian border will see some more snow with this storm. Winds also kick up, by tomorrow morning between 20-25mph. Low: 33° (Yellow)

Wednesday: Showers lingering through the morning...mostly rain in the lower elevations and snow in the mountains as the storm moves east. Expect winds to remain breezy through the day. Mostly cloudy skies once the showers stop. High: 40° (Yellow)
