Rain, high winds to continue into next week

Urban areas could see up to an inch of rain

An onslaught of rain and high winds hit the Bay Area Saturday morning and the bad weather will continue all weekend and into next week, according to the National Weather Service.

Higher elevations could get some snow, the weather service said.

The rain will taper off Saturday night but will return Sunday and won't let up until Monday, according to weather officials. More storms are expected next week.

Urban areas could see up to an inch of rain, while the North Bay could get as much as 3 inches. A high-wind advisory was in effect from 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; winds were expected to be between 20 and 30 mph during the day, with gusts reaching 45 mph.

National Weather Service forecasters warn that trees may fall, causing power outages for residents.

The U.S. Coast Guard is also warning mariners to watch out for high winds and choppy seas this weekend. Recreational boaters should stay off the water, as should surfers.
