...WARM WEATHER NEXT WEEK TO CAUSE RISES ON RIVERS...

Much above average temperatures are expected across the Pacific
Northwest and southwest Canada from Tuesday through at least
Friday. High temperatures in the lowlands of eastern Washington
and northern Idaho will likely reach the 70s Tuesday and
Wednesday. By Thursday and Friday, some spots may eclipse 80
degrees.

With mountain snowpack well above average, the warm weather will
produce an influx of runoff into our rivers and streams. With
snowpack around 150 percent of normal, rivers fed by runoff from
British Columbia and the northern Washington Cascades will likely
experience the largest rises late next week into next weekend. The
Kettle, Moyie, Okanogan, and Stehekin Rivers are a few rivers
that are expected to make significant rises.
