SAN FRANCISCO -- Rain, rain, why are you going away?

Many Bay Area residents woke up to familiar rays of sunlight Saturday following a day of showers in the second-driest winter in recorded history.

Rain totals since midnight Friday were dismal, with downtown San Francisco recording only 0.06 inches, San Jose 0.19 inches and Oakland and Concord coming in at 0.02 inches, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Steve Anderson.

And the likelihood the Bay Area will see any more rain soon is quickly dwindling.

Anderson said there is a possibility of scattered showers through the rest of Saturday morning, but by the afternoon, only puddles and soggy ground will be reminders of the storm that just passed through.

Temperatures will be in the upper 50s Saturday before bumping up to the mid 60s. Clouds will disappear by Sunday, which is expected to be sunny and have temperatures hovering around 64 degrees.

As for another storm, chances of more showers in the coming days are not looking good, Anderson added.

While weather will be "unsettled" going into next week, there is only a 30 percent chance of showers on any given day.

But did this past week's rain help to tackle the drought?

"Not likely," Anderson said. "We still have a very long way to go."
