Cold, mostly dry weather is allowing water officials to ease pressures on rivers still running high almost two weeks after a deluge of tropical downpours triggered massive flooding in Northern California. Releases from mountain dams have been reduced by small degrees but enough so that "waters are very slowly receding" and reducing the strain on weak levees, mostly on the San Joaquin River and its tributaries, a state official at flood control headquarters said Monday.

It was sunny and 88 in Alaska, while Northern California's endless winter continued Saturday, kicking off yet another weekend of heavy rains, chilly temperatures and more snow in the Sierra. Much of the San Francisco Bay Area struggled to reach the low 60s under rainy skies Saturday, with showers falling from Stockton to Ukiah. Winds of up to 30 m.p.h. buffeted the coast, while snow fell at altitudes as low as 4,000 feet in the Sierra Nevada.

Sometimes a fashion item comes out of hibernation and you have to think, should I go for it, or is it just a passing fancy? The last time we wore ponchos, Kate Jackson was the Courteney Cox of the airwaves. Ponchos resurfaced in the fall 1999 collections of Ralph Lauren, Max Azria for BCBG and Anna Sui. Then we saw them on "Ally McBeal," being worn by Nelle Porter (Portia de Rossi), who may very well be the luckiest character on TV.
