    Local waterways still very dangerous for Memorial Day weekend

    Friday, May 25 2018 9:26 PM EDT2018-05-26 01:26:18 GMT

    SPOKANE, Wash.- Whether it's the temperature, or the speed,  some of the waterways in the area are too dangerous to go into this Memorial Day weekend. Even though it feels warm outside, the river water is still actually very cold. If you were to completely submerge your body in it, it wouldn't take long to get hypothermia.
