Pacific Gas & Electric said about 18,350 customers were still without power in its Sierra Division, including El Dorado, Placer, Nevada and Sierra counties, Tuesday evening.

Forecasters billed the front that arrived Monday as weak but it left some high rainfall totals in the San Francisco Bay Area as well.
