SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The first winter-like storm this season is expected to blast California with rain, snow and cooler weather through Monday evening.

Rain and cooler weather are expected across the state, with temperatures dropping into the 60s.

A slight chance of thunderstorms is expected Monday afternoon with clear skies predicted by Tuesday.

The National Weather Service says a cold front coming from the Pacific Northwest has already dropped some rain in the Sacramento region.

Some cities in the San Francisco Bay Area have already seen nearly an inch of rain.

Forecasters said the storm could dump up to 8 inches of snow at about 7,000 feet in the Sierra Nevada, and possibly up to 12 inches of snow along the highest mountain peaks.

In Southern California, forecasters warn of rough seas and gusty winds due to the cold unstable air.
