Rain returned to the Inland Northwest today, and forecaster said it is likely to remain in the forecast throughout the week, with a chance that snow showers might be part of the mix.
In the mountains, where snow packs last week were measured at about 70 percent of normal for this time of year, the forecast calls for snow. The mountains of Northeast Washington and North Idaho could see heavy snow showers Monday night and Tuesday.
About a tenth of an inch of rain was measured at Spokane International Airport through 8 p.m. tonight.
The chance of rain continuing through Tuesday is likely. Wet snow showers are possible on Tuesday morning. Precipitation in the form of rain or snow showers is likely through the day Friday.
Highs through Wednesday are expected to be in the low-40s with lows at night near 35.
