Cooler weather returns to North State

The warm and sunny skies had many people outside the past few days but that's going to become a thing of the past over the next week. Mother Nature is about to give us a taste of winter here across the North State.

With temperatures at least 10 degrees above normal and tons of sunshine, many people across the across the North State were out soaking in the sun and enjoying the warm temperatures. Lots of people decided to come down to the Sycamore Pool in Lower Bidwell Park. “I'm enjoying it so much. I got back from spring break and the weather is still great so I’m here enjoying it in Bidwell right now," said Nicole Nacsa, a student at Chico State. Monique Venegas of Chico added "it's actually pretty fun. Just coming here, getting wet, and taking my dog out. She’s still a baby so we take her out to get used to everybody."

With the approaching storm on Tuesday, some are disappointed to see the warmer weather come to an end. "I'm pretty bummed. This weather was so nice I’m sad to see that it's going away tomorrow," said Nacsa.

However, others say they welcome the cool and wetter conditions. “I'm really into fishing and stuff, so getting the rain is going to make the year a lot better and not so dry," explained Zachary Pedersen of Chico.

Reservoirs in the North State are still low and could use some much needed rain and snow. Even with all the storms last month, Lake Oroville and Shasta Lake are both at only 46% of capacity. With this storm, we'll be adding to those totals but it still won't get us out of this drought.
