    SPOKANE, Wash. - Avista will need to open additional gates at the Post Falls Dam today to allow the increased flow in the Spokane River to pass by the dam. This action is due to a large amount of rain in the North Idaho mountains over the last 24 hours which is causing Coeur d'Alene Lake to rise. Avista is waiting to open the biggest gate until this afternoon to allow Spokane River users to move their boats and equipment to a safe location in the river.>>

SPOKANE, Wash. -  Is it a wet soggy start to your summer?  It is here in Spokane, but don't think the worst.

The wettest  summer on record was in 1888 when we got 5.12 inches of rain in June. As of 10:30 Monday morning, we only had 2.51 inches.

If you are thinking about taking in some swimming, be advised. The city of Spokane swimming pools don't open unless the weather is 65 degrees or above.
