SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — As busy as things were for the California Highway Patrol amid calls for accidents and flooded roadways during a wet Monday morning commute, officers still had time to take photos of a spectacular rainbow near the San Francisco International Airport.
The rainbow appeared late Monday morning during a brief break in the rain that has been delivered to the region by an atmospheric river of sub-tropical moisture that has stalled over the Bay Area.READ MORE: Fans Rally Behind Road Warrior San Francisco 49ers; Will Tickets Be Available For NFC Championship Game?
