For Your Information

  • We encour­age trav­el­ers to con­tact busi­ness­es they wish to vis­it before trav­el­ing to deter­mine their cur­rent sta­tus of operation.
  • Butte County’s Mediter­ranean cli­mate, dis­tin­guished by cool, wet win­ters and hot, dry sum­mers, cre­ates con­di­tions that are ide­al for agri­cul­ture, but also may result in occa­sion­al sea­son­al weath­er-relat­ed events.
  • Butte Coun­ty is a large region encom­pass­ing near­ly 1,700 square miles. Most often weath­er-relat­ed issues occur in one por­tion of the coun­ty with the great major­i­ty of the area com­plete­ly unaffected.
  • When trav­el­ing to any des­ti­na­tion, espe­cial­ly dur­ing the peak time peri­ods for weath­er-relat­ed events, vis­i­tors should be aware of the poten­tial for a sit­u­a­tion that will require imme­di­ate action. All trav­el-relat­ed cau­tions should be con­sid­ered when mak­ing arrange­ments for any trip. 
  • Trav­el­ers should con­sult a rep­utable trav­el­er check­list such as the fol­low­ing before trav­el­ing: Trav­el­ers from abroad click here and domes­tic trav­el­ers click here .
