Welcome to Spokane County
March has come in like a lion and it's the perfect time to explore some of the area's indoor treasures. For example, the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture has four galleries of wonder, filled with beautiful art and artifacts, or perhaps a visit to Mobius, the Science Museum for children of all ages in downtown Spokane.
Then again, if you're an avid skiier or snowboarder the season is underway at Mt. Spokane, which also boasts excellent cross-country ski trails!
Spokane County Flood Watch
Rainfall along with snow melt due to warming temperatures have led to a rapid rise in area small streams and rivers, with the potential for some storm water flooding. Area rivers and streams are running higher than normal. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
