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.
Heading into next week, temperatures will rise into the 60s for the entirety of the week with plenty of sunshine for San Francisco.
As the death toll climbs early this week, thunderstorms will continue to disrupt rescue and recovery efforts across the Kathmandu Valley.
Severe thunderstorms and heavy rain will continue to push eastward across the upper Gulf Coast and re-fire farther west in Texas into Monday night.
