Today's weather: Monday, October 15

Having held out to give The City a nice weekend, rain is expected to return today but only in moderate amounts. The Bay Area should see a light rain by mid-morning today, according to National Weather Service forecasters. High temperatures are estimated to rise into the low 60s with cloudy conditions.

Tonight

With partly cloudy skies, more rain is expected tonight with temperatures dropping to roughly 50 degrees.

Tomorrow

The Bay Area should see even more rain but not until the afternoon but temperatures are anticipated to rise into the upper 60s.

Traffic

Traffic on the Bay Bridge is backed up beyond MacArthur Maze due to an earlier accident in San Francisco.

The minor accident on U.S. 101 at Fifth Street occurred before 6 a.m. but has jammed up transbay traffic since then because it took some time to clear the scene. The metering lights have been turned on to ease congestion on the bridge.

The 61 BART trains running are all on time.
