Rain To Make 'Very Slippery Roadways'

The National Weather Service says rain is likely to spread across the Bay Area today, Monday, with more possible through Wednesday. The agency warned of "very slippery roadways" since it's the first significant rain of the season.

 

Bay Area drivers should exercise extra caution Monday because the first significant rainfall of the season will cause extra-slippery roadways, the National Weather Service said.

Rain is forecast to spread through the Bay Area, with the possibility of off-and-on showers through Wednesday.

The weather service also warned of dangerous driving conditions in a "Hazardous Weather Outlook":

"MOTORISTS ARE URGED TO USE CAUTION AS THIS FIRST SIGNIFICANT RAIN OF SEASON FOR MUCH OF THE AREA WILL RESULT IN LEACHING OUT OF LONG-ACCUMULATED OILS IN THE PAVEMENT...AND THUS VERY SLIPPERY ROADWAYS."

Rainfall totals through tonight are forecast to be around 1-1/4 inches in the wettest portions of the North Bay coastal hills and to range between 1/4 and 1/2 inches at lower elevations around the Bay, the weather service said.
