This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of North Idaho...
North Central Idaho...East Central Washington...North Central
Washington...Northeast Washington and Southeast Washington.


A very wet storm will impact the region today and bring periods of
moderate to locally heavy precipitation today and tonight. Snow
is also expected this morning in cooler valleys across the
northern third of Washington and northern Idaho Panhandle. Snow
levels will likely rise above 5000 feet by afternoon and remain
elevated through the night.


An even wetter and warmer system is expected to impact the area
Monday night and continue through Tuesday night. This system
should produce even heavier precipitation with snow levels again
generally above 5000 feet. The abundant precipitation will likely
lead to rises on the smaller rivers and streams across the region
and ponding of water in low-lying areas is possible. This system
will also deliver breezy winds on Tuesday.
