Flood watch issued for North Idaho

February 28, 2022

The National Weather Service, Spokane, has issued a flood watch for North Idaho from this morning through Wednesday morning. The area includes Boundary, Bonner, Kootenai, Shoshone, Benewah and Latah Counties.

Moderate to heavy rain and snowmelt will result in increased runoff that could cause minor flooding on creeks, streams and rivers as well as in low-lying areas and in urban areas with poor drainage.

An atmospheric river over the region Monday will bring warmer temperatures, wind and one to three inches of rain.

If possible, clear snow and ice away from drains in urban areas. Create channels in ice and snow to allow water to drain away from homes and buildings if located in a low-lying spot. Continue to monitor later forecasts to stay up to date. Report flooding to local law enforcement and the National Weather Service.
