4:19 am
some people are like make it stop. i've had a range of feedback on facebook and twitter. i do appreciate that. very typical with an atmospheric river. it's very low in the atmosphere. you need a tool that can scan lower and pick up more details with these low storms that will be moving through and we are seeing heavy rain in napa county and moving into solano county. it's starting to ease up. san francisco seeing some rain moving through and it will make it very sloppy heading over to the east bay. we head over to antioch and brentwood, some light rain there
4:20 am

4:22 am
showers. this is when we'll have a chance of a few thunderstorms popping up and the evening commute. that's some really good news. we have a chance for the water to soak into the ground before more rain comes in mostly scattered showers into the day tomorrow. much cooler temperatures with low elevations snow and that's when snow levels for the sierra. that will be enough with the very saturated ground in the hills. we could see a couple of trees knocked over. we're going to have gusty winds and shifting winds. san francisco once again more rain throughout much of the morning with a slight chance of some thunderstorms for the afternoon, tomorrow scattered showers.
4:23 am
inland areas expect more of the same but it will be warming up. mike, you have wet roads and a new crash. >> i do, kari. not necessarily related. i'm showing you that yellow sweeping through hayward off the san mateo bridge, 580. wet all over. the puddling and ponding, talking about 280. slippery conditions likely there. we have a crash that may be block i blocking lanes, a spinout there. light traffic on the peninsula
