Most of the rain moved in while many commuters were asleep, with scattered showers not lasting too long.

CHP Officer Andrew Barclay says it was a busy morning in Marin County where several calls came in to 911 over two separate accidents on Lucas Valley Road in West Marin County.

Barclay says he wishes people would slow down and not get so close to the car in front of them during wet weather.

He says he realizes rain can catch drivers off guard, especially with the timing of this storm, but he is just asking that people pause and think.
