The drought continues this week in the Los Angeles area with plenty of sunshine everyday.

It continues as residents during 2013 went through their driest year on record, the National Weather Service said. No rain is in the forecast for the foreseeable future.

Temperatures will be above seasonal normals reaching into the lower to upper 70s each day.

Plenty of sunshine is on tap for the city through the weekend and into next week.

Despite a late-week storm which will bring heavy rainfall to much of the Northwest, California's drought will continue, as the state will just miss the storm to the north.

In 2013, downtown Los Angeles received 3.6 inches of rain, which is only 24 percent of its normal annual rainfall.

The previous record for driest year on record for the area was 4.08 inches in 1947 and in 1953.

The weekend will feature at least partly sunny skies everyday with temperatures consistently in the 70s.

No rain is in sight for the city anytime soon.
