SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Northern California residents recovering from a series of wet, windy storms won't get much of a break.

The National Weather Service says another significant system is expected to hit parts of the region on Tuesday, with rain continuing into the following day.

As much as 5 more inches of rain could fall before the storm moves out.

National Weather Service meteorologist Dan Keeton says the rain could be especially heavy at times in areas north of Redding and across the Sierra. Still, it will be nothing like the downpours that left between 15 to 20 inches of rain in some of those areas over the five-day period that ended Sunday.
