Day dawns wet after last night’s thunderstorms
Rain-drenched windshields were part of most Menloite’s back-to-work AM commutes today after the MLK day break.
Overnight thunderstorms and high winds clobbered the mid-Peninsula and South Bay, depositing nearly an inch of rain locally (.9″ according to Menlo’s ace backyard meteorologist Bill Russ).
Forecasters say an even bigger storm is headed our way over the Eastern Pacific, bringing more cool, and very wet, conditions, probably through the end of the week. Night time temperatures will dip into the low 40s with daytime highs in the low- to mid-50s.
