The Embarcadero is one of the most popular spots for runners and cyclists. Early Friday morning people were seen running without umbrellas or raincoats.

At Pier 14 the water is high. At times it has splashed over the railing. High tide Friday morning peaked at around 11:00 a.m. People walking by have commented about how high the water is.

There is a decent amount of fog over the Bay Bridge. There aren't too many commuters, but hopefully those who were coming in or out of the city Friday morning left earlier.

People driving along the Embarcadero drove cautiously with their headlights on and windshield wipers going. That may help people avoid any weather related accidents.

The rain is coming down at SFO and there are dozens of cancellations. San Francisco is reporting 58 flight cancellations. In San Jose, some flight delays of up to 15 minutes but no cancellations. In Oakland, all clear, no cancellations or delays.

Passengers have been dealing with travel issues, but not because of weather. United Airlines says a computer glitch triggered delays and cancellations across the world including their huge hub in San Francisco.

People took to social media to complain about delays and of course they had a lot of time to think about that, up to six hours for some. United sent out a tweet around midnight saying the computer issue had been resolved. The airline is apologizing for the inconvenience.
