Use Caution on Area Rivers

Use Caution on Area Rivers

EID urges a cautious approach to local streams and rivers. As the weather continues to warm  up, the snow at higher elevations in the Sierra Nevada is continuing to melt. Due to the considerable snowpack this  year, it is anticipated that local streams and rivers—including Caples Creek and the South Fork and Silver Fork  American River—will be noticeably higher and colder for a longer period than usual. These factors will likely make  recreation areas and trail crossings along streams hazardous and unusable well into the summer recreation season.  

Cooler temps here to stay for Memorial Day weekend

Cooler temps here to stay for Memorial Day weekend

Cool temperatures on Friday will continue into the Memorial Day holiday weekend. News10 meteorologist Mellisa Paul said Saturday we'll see variable clouds through the valley and highs in the low 70s. Snow showers are expected up in Tahoe so if you're headed there for camping, be prepared.

Sunday and Monday (Memorial Day) will be mostly sunny in the valley but more clouds through the foothills and Sierra, said Paul. Highs will be in the mid 70s.

On Tuesday, you'll head back to work in partly to mostly sunny skies and highs unseasonably cool in the lower 70s.
