@ This Hour: Flood Advisory In Effect For Our Region

KHQ WEATHER AUTHORITY: A flood advisory is in effect this morning after heavy rain caused water to pond along roadway and raised a risk that small creeks or streams could overflow their banks.

The National Weather Service issued the advisory on Monday night to remain in effect until 11 a.m. today over Northeast Washington and North Idaho, including Spokane and Kootenai counties.

Rainfall amounts to a quarter inch in an hour are likely.

In Spokane, some intersections where drains are plugged had standing water in them, creating traffic hazards.

From 6 a.m. to 7 a.m., the weather service recorded 0.17 inches of rain at Spokane International Airport. The rain was accompanied by wind gusts to 40 mph.

About 7 a.m., the rain and wind moved over Post Falls and Coeur d'Alene where winds gusted to 38 mph.

Elsewhere, gusts to 47 mph were measured in Lewiston, 39 mph in Pullman, 46 mph at Fairchild Air Force Base and 43 mph at the weather service office north of the air base.

Larger rivers in the region were expected to crest below flood stage.
