Snowmelt expected to cause higher water

SACRAMENTO, CA - A flood of runoff from the winter's massive snowpack is expected to raise water levels and perhaps cause flooding along some rivers in Northern California.

"Last month the water came up to the deck," said Jeffrey Allen, as he stood beside the South Fork of the American River east of Pollock Pines in El Dorado County.

Allen showed visitors pictures of the damage to his grandparents cabin in the flood of 1997 that swept away the deck. He said it's all about being prepared.

"Family first. And the animals. This is just stuff. Stuff can be replaced. Lives can't be replaced," Allen said. "Just get out and everything can be replaced, you know?"

Like many who live along area riverbanks, Allen is hoping the snowpack will melt gradually.

Experts caution that water levels will depend on how fast the melt happens.

Fog, cold temps here to stay

Fog, cold temps here to stay

Northwest winds and patchy low clouds overnight lead to Thursday morning's foggy conditions during the commute. But skies cleared and the sun will be shining by afternoon as a high pressure ridge builds in across the state, according to News10 meteorologist Mellisa Paul.

Highs for Thursday will be near 60 and north winds will calm throughout the day leading to a foggy Friday forecast in the valley. But the fog should clear late in the day Friday for an afternoon of sunshine and highs remaining near 60.
