Cold front approaching

WebMD’s Cold and Flu Map provides your sickness forecast

Yeah, yeah, we know it’s cold out there. We don’t need a weatherperson to tell us that it’s been freezing around here lately. But what about the other “cold” outlook? The one that tips us to the cold and flu patterns in the U.S., and shows how sick people are in our area and in those surrounding ours? WebMD’s interactive Cold and Flu Map has your forecast. For example, for the week ending Nov. 30, Butte, Tehama and Glenn counties were at a “moderate” level of sickness, while Trinity was at “severe” and Plumas was at “mild.” Visit for the latest info.
