As a result of significantly below-normal rainfall, 2013 will go down in the record books as the driest year for many California locations, with no immediate relief in sight for San Francisco.
The average amount of precipitation for the Bay Area in a year is 20.65 inches, however, 2013 delivered 3.38 inches to the region.
Los Angeles received 3.6 inches of rain for the year, which broke the previous record of 4.08 inches first set in 1947. The usual amount for the city is 14.93.
Of the six most populated cities in California, only San Diego, which was still significantly below its average rainfall, was at least 50 percent of normal for precipitation amounts at 5.57 inches compared to their annual average of 10.34.
The remainder of the workweek offers no relief from the drought for San Francisco. Mostly sunny skies will dominate, as well as highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. Cloudiness will be more prevalent in early morning hours near the coast.
The overnight hours will have lows that dip into the middle 40s through the weekend.
