8:45 pm – steady drizzle for the last hour or so. Will be measurable in the morning, when I will update.
Fog/ low-level clouds from the highway, at about 200 ft, all the way to my elevation at 3272 ft. Can’t see if it is higher than that, as the entire route was all socked in. Drizzle/light rain started about 5:45 pm, and continues. Was a gorgeous day, before this set in around 5 pm.
NOAA discussion had this to say: “FOR TONIGHT…EXPECT THE LIGHT SHOWERS FROM THIS AFTERNOON TO LINGER MOSTLY FROM SJC NORTHWARD. HOWEVER…DID INCLUDE A SLIGHT CHC OVER THE SOUTHERN ZONES. MAYBE A LITTLE OVER OPTIMISTIC WITH SOUTHERN EXTENT OF PRECIP…BUT THE MODELS DID NOT HANDLE TODAY/S PRECIP VERY WELL. TUESDAY WILL BE A REAL TRANSITION DAY AS A RATHER ROBUST UPPER LEVEL JET DROPS INTO NORCAL DURING THE DAY. LINGERING MOISTURE COMBINED WITH ADDED LIFT FROM THE JET WILL HELP TO PRODUCE MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWERS OVER THE DISTRICT. RAINFALL TOTALS WILL ONCE AGAIN BE GREATEST OVER THE NORTH BAY WITH 0.25-0.5 INCHES LOWER ELEVATIONS AND UP TO AN INCH IN THE HILLS. ELSEWHERE RAINFALL AMOUNTS WILL GENERALLY BE LESS THAN 0.25 INCHES.”
