SPOKANE, Wash. — Big weather headline is daily rainfall and snow melt for the next 7 days. This will come off the back of warmer temperatures with highs in the mid 40s most days.

Snow isn't quite finished just yet, the next weather system hits the area Wednesday afternoon and evening. While temperatures my be in the mid-30s, a rain/snow mix will be possible with no accumulations. Any snow would change to all rain by Thursday morning.

After that, there are at least daily rain chances through Sunday. All that rain will amount to about 1", which isn't particularly heavy, spread out over 7 days. So flooding isn't an issue, except for local streets with snow-clogged storm drains.

A few sides notes - Cascades mountain pass travel is going to be at it's worst tonight and Wednesday morning. But once the snow switches to rain by Wednesday afternoon, conditions should improve for the rest of the week.

Because of the heavy rain and significant snow melt in western Washington, flooding will be an upcoming issue late week.
