Parts of Southern California are awash after a big pre-winter storm dumped more than 7 inches of rain with no real end in sight.

Forecasters say the heavy weather could continue on-and-off into Christmas Day.

The rains triggered scores of accidents, a few minor mudslides and downed trees.

A flash-flood warning is in effect for parts of Southern California, particularly mountain areas burned in recent years by wildfires.

In Northern California, moderate to heavy rainfall fell on San Francisco early Sunday, but by late morning most of the precipitation had moved east.

Despite light weekend traffic, the rain triggered more than 60 accidents throughout the Los Angeles area, according to the California Highway Patrol.
