OROVILLE, Calif. - A reported threat of violence brought law enforcement to the campus of Central Middle School in Oroville Monday.

Principal Mikeial Williamson sent a letter home to parents saying school officials learned Monday Morning that a student had made threats to harm students and staff at Central.  The threat specified a date and time, and Oroville Police immediately conducted an investigation that determined the threat was not credible.

The letter says the student was not on campus Monday and will not be returning.  Still, police beefed up patrols around the school and had school resource officers available.

Aside from the haze and smoke, we've had beautiful weather in northern California today, and it will be just as nice tomorrow. A storm is coming our way, however, and we'll have very unsettled weather this weekend.
