Heavy Rain, High Surf, Snow in NorCal Forecast

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Heavy rain, pounding waves and plenty of snow in the mountains are all in the forecast as Northern Californians brace for a weekend of wintry weather.

Forecasters say as one storm system moves through the region Saturday, a second system is expected to hit the area Sunday.

With steady rain expected through Saturday, and heavy to moderate rain for Sunday, the National Weather Service has issued a "hazardous weather outlook" for the San Francisco Bay area.

Along the coast, waves up to 16 feet are expected. Forecasters are urging people walking along beaches or jetties to watch for large breaking waves.

In the mountains, heavy snow is expected Saturday and Sunday, with up to four feet predicted to fall in the higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada.
