The weekend's heavy rains nearly caused major flooding in San Anselmo and Fairfax and triggered sporadic power outages, but the next storm is not expected to be as muscular.
More rain was in the forecast for Tuesday night, hitting the North Bay first then traveling south through the Bay Area. A half-inch to inch of rain was expected in the North Bay with the rest of the area getting one-third to one-half an inch of precipitation, according to the National Weather Service.
It will also be windy again, but not as gusty as last weekend, according to the NWS.
"Speeds don't look that impressive," the NWS reported Monday.
But the five-day rainfall totals for the Bay Area the NWS released Monday were impressive.
Venado, west of Healdsburg in Sonoma County, and Mount Umunhum, in Santa Clara County, topped the list with 15.88 and 15.72 inches of rain, respectively.
Kentfield saw 9.48 inches of rain during the five day storm.
Before the storm, Kentfield had accumulated 7.91 inches of rain since the beginning of July, according to the National Weather Service. As of Dec. 4, 16.78 inches of rain has accumulated in Kentfield since July.

The torrential downpour soaked hillsides, caused creek levels to rise and swamped roads.
San Anselmo officials sounded the towns flood siren Sunday morning when the creek levels quickly rose from 6 feet at 7:33 a.m. to just under 13 feet around 9 a.m. Fairfax Creek also saw a similarly huge spike and the Fairfax Town Hall almost flooded.
