Rain will return to the San Francisco Bay Area this afternoon, National Weather Service officials said.

The light rain will continue into Saturday morning before it stops ahead of a storm on Sunday.

Forecasters expect 0.1 to 0.5 inches in urban areas and 0.75 to 1.5 inches on coastal ranges and in the North Bay Mountains.

Up to 2 inches are expected in the wettest areas.

The storm on Sunday will be a bit stronger.

Storm-related winds will be from the south at 15 to 25 mph. Gusts may be as strong as 40 mph and stronger on peaks and ridges, weather officials said.

Winds may down trees and cause power outages, make driving difficult and toss unsecured items around.

The winds are expected to be lighter than last weekend.

More rain is expected next week, although the details are uncertain.
