It's going to be a wet and possibly wild Easter Sunday.

Morning services were mostly dry, but the rain is forecast to come down and come down hard at times in the late afternoon and evening hours.

The rain will start in the North Bay and spread south and east hitting the entire Bay Area by sundown.

Rainfall totals will range from .50 to 2.00 inches of rain by Monday morning, according to NBC Bay Area meteorologist Craig Herrera.

Forecasters are warning holiday travelers about a powerful storm front moving into Northern California.
     
The National Weather Service says driving could be hazardous on mountain roads as the system hits the western slope of the Sierra Nevada Sunday afternoon. The heaviest snowfall in the mountains is expected Sunday night. Forecasters say heavy snow and gusty winds could create whiteout conditions for people making their way home from a holiday weekend in the Sierra.  Gusts from 50 to 70 miles per hour will hit Sunday afternoon through Monday morning.

The National Weather Service canceled a high surf advisory Sunday morning, waves are still expected to be big along the coast.

The storm system offshore had been generating large, steep  swells. As the swells approached the coast they  were producing steep, breaking waves within the surf zone.
     
The waves have decreased below 15 feet, allowing forecasters to  cancel the advisory.
