Spillway repairs at the troubled Oroville Dam will get their first major test this weekend, as meteorologists have revised their forecast and are now predicting a much wetter and warmer storm outlook.

However, the situation will change substantially Sunday when a larger storm arrives at Oroville and the Feather River basin.
