CHICO, Calif. -

Round two of wet weather hit the Northstate very hard Friday; especially in Butte County.

The foothills are covered in snow, and the rain came down all day.

Snow crews were out all day Friday near Butte Meadows, making sure drivers were able to get through the snow.

In downtown Chico, many people wore rain jackets, carried their umbrellas and tried their best to get out of the rain and wind.

"I'm not used to it being from southern California. This is a little much for me, but it's nice because we are in a drought so we need it,” said Chico State student, Christine McIsaac.

"The rain is getting heavier and it's been going all day. Usually you would have a break in between; especially, when you're trying to get to class,” said Chico State student Bianca Sanchez.

The California Highway Patrol said that only two accidents have been reported in Butte County, and one reported in Susanville. They also received a few reports of a few spin outs, but no one was hurt in any of those accidents.

The CHP said no chain requirements for the foothills near Butte Meadows.

They advise you slow down in wet weather and make sure your windshield wipers are working properly.
