But don't quit your rain dance just yet. It won't be much rain and it won't pour for long. 

The National Weather Service reports that showers are headed to San Francisco later tonight through tomorrow morning. When it's all said and done, we could see as much as one-tenth of an inch of rain. A possible a puddle or two. 

Although any rain is refreshing for the drought-stricken region, this storm won't even put a dent in the dryness here. It's also no indication that the typical rainy season in San Francisco will be rainy at all, says Steve Anderson, meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

"I wouldn't get your hopes up," Anderson tells us. "You're still in drought mode."

On the bright side, you won't need to water your plants tomorrow.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
