and then you go by 10:00 the steady light rain rolls in with a few moderate spots but at 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, up to 6:00 when the heavy rain starts to fall and then tapering during the morning commute and then scattered showers for the rest of the dawes. at 2:00, up to nearly an inch, possibly two to three inches in some of the higher elevations by tomorrow morning. we've also got the big surf at noon tomorrow, through 4:00 on saturday. 24 to 28 foot swells. swell period 14 to 15 feet and the sierra at 4:00 tomorrow morning and 10:00 at saturday, a foot near 5,000 feet to nearly two to three feet above there and a couple more feet of snow on sunday when we have the stronger storm roll on in. so saturday is a wash-out -- excuse me. sunday, check that. sunday is a washout. saturday will the no be. tomorrow morning will be a
