The drought saga continues in Southern California, as the region has little chance for significant rain in the next week.

Temperatures for Los Angeles this week will be near average for this time of year, around 65 F each day. Overnight lows will be consistently in the upper 40s and low 50s.

Thursday will feature partly sunny skies.

Late-week rain could bring some showers to the city.

"There could be a couple of showers Thursday night and to start Friday, but amounts will be quite light and spotty around the L.A. Basin," AccuWeather.com Western Weather Expert Ken Clark said.

Even though the city desperately needs rain, the late-week showers will not be significant enough to aid in relieving the severe drought conditions in the area.

Over the weekend, sunshine will return and temperatures will rise into the 70s to begin the following week.

There is little to no chance of rain for the region next week.
