Heavy rain left the Bay Area soggy and at risk of mudslides, but Southern California is expected to fare much better.
Thousands were without power as wind and rain lashed the Sacramento area, but storms that hit the north Saturday night and Sunday morning were not expected to impact the Los Angeles area as much as previously feared.
Instead, cool, overcast weather and some showers are expected in much of the area. Temperatures will linger in the 50s in the mountain areas, and in the low to mid-60s elsewhere on Sunday.
