    A second storm system for the weekend will continue to lash the Bay Area with widespread rain and gusty winds for most spots throughout the day Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

    The storm triggered a flood advisory in southeastern Marin County until 4:45 p.m., according to the weather service. It also prompted a wind advisory between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. for all Bay Area neighborhoods except those in the Santa Clara Valley and southern Salinas Valley.

    In the South Bay, flooding was reported on both sides of Highway 85 in West San Jose late Sunday, according to the CHP. The standing water was reported on the highway near De Anza Boulevard, where there also was a multi-vehicle crash.

    Farther south in Gilroy, downed power lines caused the closure of Hecked Pass in both directions late Sunday night, according to police. The roadway was closed between Santa Teresa Boulevard and Burchell Road.

    Southerly winds are expected to range anywhere from 25 to 35 mph, according to the weather service. Some gusts could top out around 50 mph.

    The weather service warned that high winds could cause trees and tree limbs to fall, leading to possible power outages.

    Gusty winds may have been responsible for downed electrical wires in San Francisco. 

    Firefighters responded to the downed wires in the city's Inner Sunset neighborhood. The lines came down on multiple parked cars at 1541 Eighth Avenue and on Muni train tracks in the same area, fire officials said.

    The fire department was asking the public to avoid the area.

    When it comes to the rain, rainfall totals for Sunday into early Monday are expected to check in between 0.5 and 1.5 inches for urban areas and spots in the valleys, according to the weather service. Locations in the coastal mountains could pick up anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of precipitation.
