The Office of Emergency Management just conducted several coordination calls with our partners including the National Weather Service, the Santa Clara Valley Water District, and the Santa Clara County Office of Emergency Services. We are all leaning forward to make sure folks are aware of the bad weather we have coming our way. Tomorrow afternoon and evening will be the worst of it, with rain and wind peaking between 4 pm and 10 pm. Please be extra cautious driving during tomorrow's commute home.
