Rivers are running high and parts of the region remain on a National Weather Service flood watch as rain and melting mountain snowpack send a torrent into waterways.

High water throughout Eastern Washington and North Idaho will continue into next week, exacerbated by a Memorial Day weekend that’s looking to soggy across the Northwest.

More rain is all but certain today and tonight, and showers are likely Friday as well. The possibility of continued rain over the holiday weekend is between 30 percent and 40 percent, forecasters said today.

The weather will remain cool, too, with daytime highs expected to reach 56 today, Friday and Saturday. Then it will climb to 63 Sunday and around 68 on Monday.
