Blake Jensen: We're at the end of June and there is a possibility of some areas getting up to an INCH of rain throughout the day today. Around Spokane expect to see anywhere from a half to three quarters of an inch of rain. This all because that low pressure will be passing right over us today bringing heavy rain at times, thunderstorms and gusting winds.
Also MUCH cooler temperatures, about 20 degrees cooler than just yesterday. The good news, as long as we can get through the day today, the rest of the week looks nice. Sun should be back out tomorrow.
Tonight: Lingering showers until about midnight, conditions then start to improve. Much cooler however...Low 43°
Tomorrow: Much nicer weather...Mostly Sunny skies, calm winds and highs back in the 70s. High 72°
Also of note: Flood warnings and advisories in effect for Boundary, Bonner and Kootenai Counties. Some areas to the north could see up to an inch of rain today, causing rivers and lakes to rise. Most of the flood warnings expire by tomorrow morning.

Deputies and firefighters responded to a car crash in Spokane Valley Monday afternoon near the intersection of 4th and Blake. Deputies say the SUV was heading south on Blake when it was struck by another car, causing it to flip onto its top in a nearby yard. One person was able to get out of the SUV, but the driver had to be pulled out through the rear lift gate. Injuries appear to be minor. >>
