Rain This Afternoon. Be Prepared.
This morning was a mess with I-10 and I-210 both blocked headed West. Now it looks like a wet drive home.
There was only a forty percent chance of rain today. It looks like maybe mother nature had another idea. Please remember to slow down, turn on your lights and arrive home safely. This special weather statement has been issued by Accuweather.com
