SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A new storm has been dumping more rain on parts of Northern California that are already water-logged.

The storm is causing minor road flooding, scattered power outages and airport delays.

The rain was coming down hard this morning in the San Francisco Bay area, making for a treacherous commute. A landslide closed both directions of a highway in Fremont.

At the San Francisco International Airport, the FAA reported arrival delays of almost two hours.

Forecasters expect the storm to move into Southern California late today and overnight.

The storm -- and another weather system later in the week -- won't be nearly as powerful as the one that dumped as much as eight inches of rain in parts of Northern California last week and up to 6 feet of snow in the high elevations of the Sierra Nevada.

Forecasters say much more rain is still needed to pull the state out of its severe drought.
