San Francisco set a soggy record Tuesday, the 21st day in February that rain has fallen on the city. The frequent rainfall combined with a 29-day February broke the record of 20 days of rain set in 1915 and 1998. The rainfall total was 8.62 inches for the month as of 4 a.m. Tuesday.

A winter storm began to fade Sunday, after bringing torrential rain to parts of Northern California while causing mudslides and minor flooding. The storm set a 24-hour record for rainfall in San Francisco, flooded roads and basements throughout the Bay Area and caused two minor mudslides in Tiburon, police and fire officials said. San Francisco saw a record rainfall of 6.16 inches for the 24-hour period ending Sunday morning, meteorologist David MacPherson said.

Despite a splash of weekend rain, San Francisco Bay Area reservoirs remain mostly at drought level, officials said. Water officials have called March almost the last hope for a summer without more stringent water restrictions. As has happened repeatedly this year, just when it appeared there could be a break in the drought, rain clouds scudded off and left behind only 0.14 of an inch of rain in Oakland and 0.74 in San Francisco.

Despite hopes for a good-sized storm to end the dry season, a trace of rain should only dot windshields and hardly touch the sidewalks as a weak storm front rolls into Southern California, forecasters predicted Tuesday. A very weak, upper-level low-pressure system left half an inch of rain in San Francisco and Sacramento on Tuesday, but will only have enough to tease Orange County with some scattered showers ending by midday today, said Marty McKewon, a meteorologist with WeatherData Inc.

A low-pressure front that visited San Diego with clouds and cool temperatures last weekend is back this weekend, according to the National Weather Service in San Diego. The front, created Sept. 19 by cold air coming in from Canada, headed up the coast during the week, sprinkling rain on San Francisco and other parts of Northern California, forecaster Wilbur Shigehara said. A strong jet stream over Canada is now deflecting the front back toward San Diego, Shigehara said.

It may well pay to look before you leap outside this leap day weekend, forecasters say. Showers are possible through Sunday and could even linger through Monday, the 29th of February. "It's not the kind of weekend where you'd want to have all your relatives come in to Los Angeles," said Dan Bowman of WeatherData Inc., which provides forecasts for The Times. The first round of rain could begin late this afternoon, as a low-pressure system off Baja California moves northeast into the Southland.
