SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- There's no break in sight for Northern California where stormy weather, including heavy rain and strong winds, has knocked out power to thousands, delayed flights, tied up traffic and flooded some roadways.

After the second in a series of storms slammed the region yesterday, forecasters say scattered showers are expected today before a third storm strikes tomorrow morning.

A flash flood watch will remain in effect for most of the San Francisco Bay Area and the Santa Cruz Mountains throughout the weekend. The storms could cause rock and mud slides in areas already saturated and affected by wildfires this summer, said NWS forecaster Diana Henderson in Monterey.

Yesterday's stormy weather may be behind the death of a Pacific Gas & Electric worker whose vehicle hit a traffic signal pole.

Forecasters say the next few days could bring even more storms.
