July Rainfall Breaks Records From SoCal To Monterey County, But Won’t Bust California’s Drought

MONTEREY (CBS SF) — Despite California’s lingering drought, parts of Southern California all the way north to Monterey county received more than an inch of rain this past weekend, which is more than ten times what is normal for the entire month.

In San Francisco, we’ve received nine-hundredths of an inch of rain this July, which actually ranks as the sixth wettest July ever, and the wettest July in more than a decade.

The rainfall broke records in San Diego and downtown Los Angeles, where they have received the most July rainfall ever.  That said, the bar is quite low, as July is the state’s driest month.
