    The driest year on record in the San Francisco area occurred during 2013, the National Weather Service said.

    Downtown San Francisco only received 5.59 inches of precipitation for the year, which broke the record of 9 inches set in 1917.

    No precipitation has fallen so far in the first week of January, but that could change Saturday with a chance of an afternoon shower.

    Leading into Saturday, the end of the week will remain partly sunny with highs in the upper 50s.
