Rain to leave by afternoon, give way to 'gloomy day'
Patchy drizzle should dissipate by the early afternoon and give way to a "gloomy day" with highs in the 60s, the National Weather Service said Tuesday morning.
The morning wetness slickened streets and highways, causing a number of fender benders during the commute.
"By midafternoon it should all sort of be done," forecaster Rich Thompson said of the light rain. "It should just be sort of cloudy."
The clouds will continue rolling in throughout Tuesday evening, Thompson said.
Thompson said residents should not expect clear skies until Wednesday afternoon, when an offshore flow should help push clouds back out to sea.
