Tue., May 24, 2011, 8:37 a.m.

Today’s soggy weather will be followed by sunshine and higher temperatures in the Inland Northwest Wednesday.

The National Weather Service predicts a high of about 75 Wednesday, some 15 degrees above today’s expected high.

Then showers are expected to return Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Between a half and three-quarters of an inch of rain is possible Thursday, with the high back down to 50, the agency said today.

For the Memorial Day weekend, the likelihood of rain is projected at 30 percent to 40 percent, with daytime highs ranging from 58 Friday to 63 Sunday and Monday in the Spokane area.

A flood warning remains in effect along rivers in Ferry, Okanogan, Spokane and Benewah counties. River levels, already running high, are expected to rise further this week with more rain and melting mountain snow.
