SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The National Weather Service says a strong storm is expected to bring rain, wind and coastal flooding to the San Francisco Bay Area through part of Saturday.

Forecasters say a typhoon enhanced storm is set to sweep through the region starting Friday morning.

The storm will bring moisture associated with Typhoon Songda, which wreaked havoc in the western Pacific days ago.

Heavy winds of up to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph are also expected Friday. The storm will bring the most rain to the region since March.

Severe weather is expected to bring snow to upper elevations of the Sierra on Saturday into Sunday

Forecasters predict dry weather for at least a week starting Monday.

The Coast Guard urges boaters and beachgoers to be careful around the waters along the Northern and Central California coast due to weather conditions.
