Flood outlook: Area creeks, streams expected to rise through Monday

Creeks and small streams throughout southeast Washington and the central and southern Idaho Panhandle are expected to rise through early next week.

There will be periods of light to moderate rain through the region, which will likely lead to fluctuating levels of creeks, streams and some mainstem rivers.

The Palouse, St. Joe, Coeur d’Alene and Snake Rivers are expected to recede through early Saturday, but will be followed by minor rises into late Saturday and Sunday. A wetter system is expected to move into those areas, but flooding is not expected.


Paradise Creek is expected to see several rises through Monday, but is not expected to reach flood stage.

Other small streams and creeks throughout Spokane, Whitman, Lewis, Benewah, Latah and Nez Perce Counties will also run high as rain passes through. There is also a potential that some roads made close due to field flooding.

Beyond water rises, there will be an increased potential for rock and mud slides in some areas with saturated soils.
