YUBA CITY, Calif. - Police responded to a collision this morning in the Yuba City area that left one dead. 

According to the report, the incident occurred around 7:21 a.m. this morning when Larry Smith, 56, of Live Oak, was stopped at a traffic light going southbound on North Township Road just north of westbound SR-20.

We had a nice cooldown compared to yesterday, but we're still warmer than average here in northern California, and the breezes are blowing. We'll have similar highs Friday but the wind will get stronger, and more wind is coming.
