Overnight storm drenches SF

An overnight storm that’s expected to last through Tuesday drenched San Francisco and the greater Bay Area, causing downed trees, flooding and power outages.

A little more than an inch of rain fell in San Francisco since 10 p.m. Monday, with more rain anticipated into Tuesday evening, said National Weather Service forecaster Steve Anderson.

There will be a brief break in the rain followed by another storm Thursday, though that system will be slightly weaker than the current storm, according to Anderson.

A wind advisory was in effect through Tuesday afternoon, and flash flood warnings were issued some parts of the North Bay and the Santa Cruz Mountains.

As of shortly before 11 a.m., PG&E was reporting 196 customers without power in San Francisco.

The Golden Gate Bridge was experiencing wind gusts of up to 50-60 mph as of 9 a.m., and had closed sidewalks to pedestrians. Bicyclists were encouraged to avoid the bridge as well.

Three dozen trees or large limbs had come down in San Francisco as of 9 a.m. Locations impacted by downed trees included:

2800 block of Leavenworth
Legion of Honor
19th Avenue and Junipero Serra Boulevard
Webster Street and Geary Boulevard
Clement Street and 14th Avenue
Dolores Street near 23rd Street

No injuries were reported.

Flooding was reported at Fell and Stanyan streets, and Pine and Gough streets, according to Public Works.

Southbound Great Highway between Lincoln Way and Sloat Boulevard was closed due to flooding.
