North Coast to get a break from rain after today

Thick fog hovered near the ground across Sonoma County early Sunday, following a rainstorm that dropped nearly two inches of rain in areas of the North Coast.

And after a slight chance of rain lingering Sunday, the storm will move on, followed by another rainstorm late Tuesday and early Wednesday, forecasters said.

With the earth fully soaked, the skies should lighten up for Thanksgiving Day.

The holiday will be "a little warmer, a little drier, a little sunnier," said Diana Henderson, National Weather Service meteorologist. "But everyone's going to be indoors anyway."

Temperatures Sunday were forecast to reach 62 degrees in Santa Rosa and dip down to 43 degrees at night, Henderson said. Monday will be a little warmer, about 64 degrees.

That warming pattern will continue, bringing the daytime high to 68 degrees Thursday and 69 on Friday.

Rain totals since Friday hit 1.9 inches at the Sonoma County Charles M. Schulz Airport since Friday, Henderson said.

Weather service rain gauges measured 0.32 inches in Petaluma, 0.43 in Glen Ellen, 0.48 in Calistoga and 0.68 inches at about 1,000-foot elevation west of Healdsburg in Venado.

Volunteer weather watchers in Mendocino County noted as much as 1.07 inches fell in Willits, 0.82 in Laytonville and 0.64 on the coast in Elk. In Lake County, 0.56 inches fell in Lakeport, according to a volunteer with the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network.
