mentioned causing some accidents out there. let's get right to the area of the trouble. one cell came through the past hour. there it went. here's another one. so you really got a feel for brentwood, antioch, concord, even walnut creek. you guys are seeing back-to- back strong cells coming through. these are lightning strikes several of them coming down so of course the distraction on the driver slick roads for the drivers and these cells are bringing down about an inch of rain per hour but they are moving fairly quickly. this is just the last hour two cells coming in back to back but they bring down strong amount of rain and then they move on to the next place. but it could cause some areas of ponding, as well. let's move through the south and show you what's going on. this just picked up to the west of los gatos there. it looks like boulder creek also going to get some rain from this. woodside area where the fire is may see some sprinkles. lighter showers there. to the south though watsonville, highway 1 stronger rain coming through.
