SISKIYOU COUNTY, Calif. - A slide has closed part of Highway 96 in Siskiyou County.

Cal Trans says it closed the highway for safety reasons because of the amount of debris entering the roadway and the current weather system.

This same area, eight miles west of Happy Camp, also closed Friday night and again Saturday night because of slide activity.

Cal Trans crews were able to clear about 200 cubic yards of debris Sunday, Jan. 10 before reopening the roadway.

There is no detour available. Cal Trans says the highway will remain closed at least through Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Another mostly sunny and hot day for northern California today, quite similar to yesterday. Our weather will begin to change tomorrow, however, as a disturbance brings more clouds, cooler air, and a few showers and thunderstorms.
