YUBA CITY, Calif. – Divers were back at the Feather River in Yuba City Wednesday, searching for one of two drowning victims.

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.
