Rain looks to make a brief return to San Francisco to kick off the first week of March, but drier weather is on the horizon.
Although Monday looks to start off dry, some rain will move in for the afternoon and continue into the night. However, this rain does not appear like it will be as heavy as some of the rain that was seen last week and over the weekend.
Clouds will stick around into Tuesday despite the rain moving out of the area with highs in the low 60s.
Some sunshine is set to make a return to the city for midweek, but showers will quickly follow, moving into the area for Wednesday night and Thursday.
Temperatures for the week will remain consistently in the 60s, with overnight lows in the low 50s.
Any rain is welcome for not only areas around San Francisco, but also the entire state of California. According to a report by the U.S. Drought Monitor on Feb. 27, 2014, 90 percent of the state is in a severe drought.
The chance of rain will come once again over the weekend followed by more dry weather for the start of next week.
Relief is on the way for portions of the Plains that are in the grips of the ongoing drought.
