Mountain View has registered 1.66 inches of rain, which checks in at 111 percent of average.
San Francisco (2.63 inches; 97 percent of average), San Jose (1.32 inches; 81 percent of average) and Livermore (1.63 inches; 79 percent of average) came up short of surpassing the 100 percent of the average mark to date.
