Slick road conditions were impacting the morning commute Monday

The National Weather Service is calling for rain throughout most of the day Monday with a possibility of thunderstorms. The rain could give way to cloudy skies by Monday evening, but more rain could be on tap for the rest of the week. Showers are expected to return by Tuesday evening and could last through Thursday, forecasters say.

Slick road conditions were impacting the morning commute Monday, according to the California Highway Patrol.

There were 11 crashes reported on Orange County freeways between 6 a.m. and 6:45 a.m., causing some slowing traffic.

Among them:

A Mercedes-Benz slid down an embankment on the southbound I-405 in Irvine, near Jamboree Road, after it collided with a Ford Mustang around 6 a.m.

A Volkswagen Passat spun out and hit the center divider on the southbound I-5, near Camino Capistrano, and wound up facing the wrong way in traffic.

Later, around 8 a.m., a SigAlert was issued for the westbound 91-freeway, just east of the 241 tollroad, after a Toyota Prius spun out and collided with three other vehicles, according to CHP. That blockage lasted about 30 minutes with slowing remaining a little longer.
