Several cities, including Redlands, Riverside and Yucaipa, reported intermittent sprinkles beginning around 5 a.m. Most of the wet weather is expected to dissipate after 10 a.m., according to the National Weather Service, making way for sunny skies and highs in the 70s. Sunny and warm weather is forecast to continue into the weekend and early next week.

The wet roads may have contributed to an increase in crashes on local freeways including a multi-vehicle crash on the 91 Freeway near Green River Road near Corona, according to the California Highway Patrol incident log.

Authorities remind motorists to take precautions when driving in the rain including increasing their following distance, slowing down and allow extra time to get to a destination, according to CHP officials.
