rest of the bay area, to kind of get hung up in the southbay for a little bit. notice how that line stayed put from 10 at night tomorrow night until 11 or so in the morning tomorrow. fairly steady rain that is showing up. once again, for the santa cruz mountains, southern santa clara county and then that line will continue all the way up to tahoe and that will turn to decent snow. that is interesting part of this storm. we will see more impressive rainfall totals, down here for the southbay and look, there it is again, developing as we get into tuesday night late going down over big sur and monterey county again. i know it looks like the storm that came through here last week in terms of that long pine getting stalled out down there but it is not nearly as impressive. but in its own right, these are good rainfall totals for one storm. about a half inch of rain here. keep in mind the rain here for the north bay, that will come through that early afternoon with a cold front actually's sweeps through. it will not be a long drawn out thing like it will be in the southbay when it stalls down
