    San Francisco: Soaking Rain to Help Alleviate Drought

    Wet days remain in the Bay Area as a second system is expected to soak the region.

    Following a bout of rain earlier in the week, another storm will slam the area, dumping another potential inch of water.

    Several inches of rain are likely through Saturday along the coast, alleviating drought conditions across California that continue to devastate the state.

    Despite the needed rain, this streak of heavy rain may create problems for California, as mudslides, debris and flash flooding are possible.

    At the rain's onset, roads will turn slick as the rain mixes with oil left on the roads during the region's dry spell.

    Flight delays are also possible ahead of and during the storm.

    This week's rain will help to alleviate drought conditions to an extent, but the area will still need plenty more to erase the drought all-together. According to the Drought Monitor, San Francisco remains classified in an extreme drought.

    Temperatures are expected to remain around normal into the weekend.
