Much-needed rain is a welcome sight on forecast maps this weekend. It will help quench wildfires and pare back a region-wide drought. But the National Weather Service says it is unlikely a rainfall deficit will be closed by year’s end.

As of September 16, Spokane had received 5.28 inches of rain – only about half what is considered average for rainfall by mid-September. Forecast rainfall amounts this weekend range from a quarter of an inch in the Moses Lake area to possibly two inches on the eastern slopes of the Cascades.

The Spokane Regional Health District is asking the public to stay out of Newman Lake due to a toxic algae bloom.

Toxic algae blooms are caused by warm temperatures, low water levels and phosphorous.

A common source of phosphorous is lawn, or agricultural fertilizers. They can also be caused by overgrowth of invasive aquatic plant species.
