PLUMAS COUNTY, Calif. - PG&E is putting out a swift water warning due to increased flows in the Feather River.

The area is in the Rock Creek Reach, an 8.3-mile portion of the north fork of the Feather River in the Plumas National Forest.

This is the same area where a young boy drowned just a few weeks ago. 

PG&E said that portion of the river between Rock Creek Dam and Storrie will be running much faster starting at Aug. 24-25 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Showers are lingering across Northern California tonight and snow levels are dipping to around 5000'. Mostly mountain showers and lower snow levels are on the way for your Saturday and then we'll dry out for your Sunday.
