In just the past week, the entire Bay Area has had enough rain to come out of drought completely.
According to data compiled by the United States Drought Monitor, the last time we were out of drought was January of 2018.

As encouraging as this sounds, the Bay Area still needs more rain this winter to stay out of drought.
