Storms bring relief, new worries to California

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The National Weather Service says a second, stronger storm will move across Southern California from late Thursday through late Saturday.

It's expected to reach Los Angeles County early Friday morning with rainfall amounts ranging from 3-6 inches in the foothills, and up to 8 inches in localized areas.

The forecast includes the possibility of isolated waterspouts and small tornados starting early Friday in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.

A high wind watch will be in effect in the Antelope Valley from late Thursday through Friday evening.

Rain fell throughout the day Wednesday in San Francisco, and gave a midday pounding to the Santa Cruz Mountains south of the Bay Area.

The showers caused the cancellation of more than 100 flights at San Francisco International Airport.
