SPOKANE, Wash. — Boy the sunshine was nice this afternoon. But the rain chances still dominate the forecast this weekend and next week.

The weekend isn't a complete washout. But Saturday will see light rain or scattered showers during the late-morning and early-afternoon hours. Sunday will bee widespread light to moderate rain during the morning, but dry for the afternoon. If we're lucky again, perhaps some sunshine for central and eastern Washington. 

Rain chances continue through at least Thursday of next week. In all, the rainfall will amount to ½-1" of rain over the next 7 days, hardly enough for flooding. Plus the majority of the snow melt has occurred the past few days.

Temperature will continue to be mild for late January, with mid-40s most days and Thursday being close to 50 degrees in Spokane!
