California's 2016 water year ended Friday with a fifth consecutive dry year of low snowfall, according to the Department of Water Resources.

The National Weather Service reports above-average rainfall in some communities, and close to average elsewhere:

Monterey 119 percent

Santa Cruz 104 percent

Livermore 101 percent

San Francisco 98 percent

San Jose 94 percent

Tahoe City 93 percent

Santa Rosa 89 percent

Napa 88 percent

Oakland 87 percent

But Southern California missed out on the El Nino bounty, dragging down the statewide average.

San Diego Airport 76 percent

Big Bear Lake 73 percent

Los Angeles, Airport 57 percent

Palm Springs 54 percent

Ojai 50 percent

Los Angeles, Downtown 46 percent

Long Beach 41 percent

Santa Ana 38 percent

The state has made saving water a permanent fixture in California.
