Wet, cool conditions were expected to continue in Larkspur and Corte Madera through Sunday evening, with a chance of clearing by Monday, according to forecasters with the National Weather Service.

Marin County roads including U.S. Route 101-El Camino Real were soaked and public safety agencies advised motorists to plan extra time for the rain and slick conditions.

"Our roads are wet, there could be some ponding, so slow down," Henderson said.

Along with the rain, south winds of 8 to 17 miles per hour were expected Friday, with gusts as high as 23 mph, according to the Weather Service.
