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.

Showers are tapering off early Tuesday, and we're left with areas of dense fog for your Tuesday morning commute. We'll have clearing skies and warmer temperatures ahead for your Tuesday afternoon, but the next wet system will arrive on Wednesday. Some showers will linger Thursday, but we'll dry and and become chilly late this week. A substantial wet system will then bring heavy rain and snow to our region from Sunday through at least the start of next week.
