us. hi, john. it's such good advice because i was also leaving early. i was running into those spots. the water on the road. it may not be our most significant rainfalls, but it still is leaving roadways wet in the midst of your morning commute. so especially for early risers. >> if you are taking to the roads here in the next few be mindful of the fact that we're still seeing rain falling for a lot of the bay. and even if you are seeing radar dry for you. it did rain about an hour ago, at least for some spots and that is resulting in those very slick conditions starting right now with what we're seeing from fremont and livermore down through san jose which is our most widespread of rain right now. 6 ad as well as the great is really looking at some of our most slick conditions. dumbarton bridge and highway 92 still in the midst of some light showers as well. san jose. it's very widespread for you. currently. you can see a little bit more zoomed in the 84 as well as 92 crossing. the bay are in the midst of some of those light showers right now. also seeing that from freeman curtain or down through milpitas this morning.

noontime today. we're really going to start tapping into some sunshine and keep that sunshine around into the afternoon as for tomorrow, a pretty sunny day, at least to start increasing clouds towards the finish of the day. some showers up in mendocino county but not expecting those to drift south from there saturday could bring a couple of isolated sprinkles but should be an overall dry one rainfall from this point forward really just a trace for the north bay, maybe a 10th of an inch elsewhere really about to be a dry day ahead of us as the shower activity gradually steers its way out. most of us today will be solidly in the 60's now even though still mild with the sunshine overhead not as warm of a day as yesterday was which was our warmest of the forecast. so today just adjust that attire accordingly not leaving the 60's so that means a be the light jacket even as the sunshine reappears later on. if you're leaving the house here shortly do bring the rain jacket with you, but you're really not going need the rain jacket for much longer. i just keep that extra layer on as for the afternoon looking dry. but cool tomorrow
