Morning drizzle could bring road hazards

Drivers throughout the Bay Area are being cautioned to drive carefully because moderate to heavy drizzle forecast for Monday evening through Tuesday morning may result in wet roadways, according to the National Weather Service.

Because there has been little to no rain in recent months in the region, slick roadways could create hazardous driving conditions, according to the weather service.

While rainfall is expected to remain low, locations that receive heavy drizzle can expect between 0.05 and 0.10 inches by Tuesday morning, weather service officials said.

Heavy to moderate drizzle is expected along the Peninsula, the Santa Cruz Mountains and the Big Sur area. The coastal areas of the North Bay, as well as San Francisco and the East Bay, will receive patchy drizzle, according to the weather service.

Inland areas located away from the coast and the Bay will likely remain dry, weather service officials said.

Drivers are urged to travel with extra caution, especially during commute times.

By late Tuesday morning, the drizzle is expected to clear up, resulting in sunny skies by early afternoon, according to the weather service.
