There will also be a chance for some showers and thunderstorms across our region this afternoon and evening. High pressure is still centered to our east, and will pull monsoonal moisture north into our region over the next couple of days.

We have partly to mostly cloudy skies overhead for the start of your Monday, and we'll continue to have clouds overhead through the day. Air quality impacts are mostly limited to the Butte County foothills, Plumas County, and areas closest to the Nevada border Monday morning. There are also weaker air quality impacts in the northern end of the valley and northern mountains early today. Temperatures are starting out in the 60's to 70's in the valley and foothills, while mountain areas have dipped into the 50's to 60's overnight.

Some US Postal Service offices closed due to the Dixie Fire until further notice

Due to the Dixie Fire, several local Post Offices will be closed and the mail diverted to the Midtown Chico Post Office. Plumas News contacted the Midtown Office to see what the process would be for residents to access their mail, since obviously all direct routes to Chico are currently closed. Plumas News was told that postal officials were meeting about the issue and more information would be available tomorrow. During the Camp Fire, mail for Paradise residents was held in Chico until such time as the local post office reopened and then the mail was forwarded for distribution. There was also an option for residents to go to the Chico Post Office to pick up mail. It could be expected that mail for all of the post offices will be held in Chico, but that will be confirmed as soon as the information becomes available.
