A major storm blew into the Bay Area overnight, causing minor flooding, a few major accidents and snarled traffic on roadways during the Friday morning commute.
The storm began late Thursday and was expected to continue through at least Saturday morning. As of early Friday, a little more than a half inch of rain had fallen in downtown San Francisco. Parts of the North Bay had seen more than an inch.
“It’s going to be a rain-soaker, if you will,” said Brian Mejia, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.
Up to three inches of rain was expected in San Francisco with the coastal hills forecast for as much as six inches.
