SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The National Weather Service says the San Francisco Bay area caught only a portion of a powerful storm system that’s soaking Southern California.

Moderate to heavy rainfall fell on San Francisco early Sunday, but my late morning most of the precipitation had moved to the east.

Forecasters say once this system passes through the region, another storm is expected to move into the area Tuesday night.

The rain is being blamed for a series of scattered power outages in area.

A spokesman for Pacific Gas and Electric says about 3,300 homes and businesses in the San Jose and Gilroy area were without power early Sunday afternoon.

About 1,200 people in the Menlo Park area had no electricity, while about 900 in the Newark and Fremont area were without power.

PG&E spokesman J.D. Guidi says the outages were all weather related.
