Another dry weekend is in store for San Francisco.
While the lack of rain is not uncommon for the Bay Area this time of year, the lack of precipitation will only serve to worsen the drought.
The city has not received measurable precipitation in July since 2007 when 0.01 of an inch of rain was recorded.
Exceptional long-term drought has been increasing across the state. No part of California is considered to be in any less than severe drought, with extreme to exceptional drought covering a majority of the land.
The weekend will feature low clouds in the mornings that will burn off in the afternoon hours as the sun heats up. Highs will stay consistently in the upper 60s, though AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures will be slightly above the actual temperature. Lows during the overnight hours will be in the high 50s.
Winds will be slight with a few gusts into the 12 to 15 mph range.
The Bully Fire raging in Shasta County is only 51 percent contained, having already consumed 11,700 acres. Mandatory evacuations are still in effect for surrounding areas. Dry, rugged terrain is providing ample fuel for the fire's growth and is providing some difficulty for containment efforts.
