Rain lingers over parts of California from big, slow-moving storm systems and is moving quickly into the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California, the National Weather Service said Monday afternoon.

High above the coastal foothills, rain continued to fall in San Francisco, with the city getting 2 to 3 inches of rain in some spots and 5 to 7 inches in others, according to the National Weather Service.
