...A FLOOD WARNING FOR RAIN AND SNOWMELT REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON
PDT SATURDAY FOR BONNER...BOUNDARY...SHOSHONE...STEVENS...FERRY...
NORTH AND WEST SPOKANE AND PEND OREILLE COUNTIES...

* Recent rain and snow melt will result in increased runoff with
  localized 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.  A wet weather pattern will continue
  through the middle of next week.  Widespread valley rain is
  expected today changing to showers Saturday.  Sunday may end up a
  dry day before more rounds of rain Monday through Wednesday.

* 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 through at least the middle of next 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.
