SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Forecasters say the worst of a wet and windy storm appears to be over for parts of Northern California.
National Weather Service forecaster Austin Cross says rain showers would be scattered for the rest of the day Sunday in the San Francisco Bay Area and the winds should also die down.
Wind gusts of over 45 mph were reported earlier in the day, with steady rainfall that dropped an additional two inches of rain in coastal areas.
Cross says the storm is moving through faster than a similar system that hit Friday, reducing the impact. Friday’s storm knocked out power to more than 90,000 people in the Bay Area.
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. spokesman Joe Molica says crews were not seeing anything similar on Sunday.
