River Safety Cautioned

The temperatures are climbing quickly into the 'is it summer already?' zone and Oakdale is lucky to have the cool, crisp waters of the Stanislaus River winding its way through the zip code. However, officials with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are quick to remind people that the river is running swift from high country snow run-off and cold with brisk temperatures between 55 and 60 degrees.

Fire Season - Prolonged Spring Prompts Concerns

There's no doubt the unseasonably cool spring weather coupled with late rains have kept the temperatures in a pleasant zone but not without cost. The rainy season has created an extra heavy fuel load as the official fire season declared by CAL FIRE - albeit delayed - approaches with an estimated late June or early July target. The date is driven by local and state burning conditions and activity.
