UNDATED (AP) -- The new year could bring more mudslides to Northern California and damaging surf to Southern California.

The National Weather Service says a double whammy of weather fronts today and again Sunday could bring another six inches of rain to San Francisco Bay and areas farther north. That could mean more mudslides and more flooding.

Rainstorms earlier in the week pushed Northern California rivers to their highest levels in seven years.

High surf advisories have been posted up and down the California coast. Fifteen-foot waves have chased away surfers and forced piers to shut down near Los Angeles. L-A County authorities are stacking sandbags against waves that could top 20 feet.

The storms also pose a threat to Monday's Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena. The last time the famous floral parade was rained on was 50 years ago.
