3 Jun 10 - This article by Matt Weiser primarily concerns river safety due to cold, fast-moving water from snowpack melt. The peak of the melt is coming about three weeks later than normal "due to unusually cool weather this spring."

However, there are a couple tidbits that I think should have been headlined.
 
"The snowpack is also unusually large due to numerous late-winter storms: 215 percent of normal statewide as of June 1, according to state Department of Water Resources data," says Weiser.
 
And this one:
 
"Water officials this week are keeping a close eye on Shasta Lake. The surrounding watershed holds a snowpack nearly four times larger than normal."

"Northern California rivers are running faster, colder than usual, officials warn"
