SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California has re-opened enrollment for its state health insurance exchange.

People can now purchase health insurance plans from Covered California through the end of the year.

Covered California Executive Director Peter Lee said Monday the goal is to get more people to buy health insurance.

New federal subsidies are available that could lower monthly premiums for some people by $1,000 or more in some cases.

To get the subsidies, people must be legal U.S. residents who can't get affordable health insurance from their job and meet certain income requirements. Most people who can't get coverage through their employer would be eligible for assistance.

We had beautiful weather around northern California on Friday with sunshine and more warmth. Saturday will also be fantastic, so get out and enjoy it! A welcome change to our very dry weather pattern is coming soon.
