LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles has concluded another rain season with little to show for it.

The National Weather Service says just 6.08 inches of rain was recorded downtown between July 1, 2013, and June 30.

That's less than half the normal average of 14.93 inches and enters the books as the seventh-driest rain season since record-keeping began downtown in 1877.

The previous rain season was worse — just 5.85 inches.

Meteorologists say that, combined, these were the driest back-to-back rain seasons ever recorded in downtown Los Angeles.

And looking at the past three seasons collectively, more than 2 feet of rain is missing.

Significant rainfall deficits for the past season were also recorded throughout drought-stricken California, from San Francisco to the Central Valley and south to San Diego.
