Lancaster residents woke up to news Friday that the city had a record amount of rainfall on Thursday.
But did it even rain?
According to the National Weather Service, a “trace” amount of precipitation fell at Lancaster Fox Field on Thursday, meaning most people in the area probably didn’t get wet, or even realize it rained.
But it was enough to best the previous Aug. 4 record for rainfall — which was zero inches, the NWS reported.
The Lancaster area was briefly under a flood advisory Thursday evening due to a storm system passing through, but it was allowed to expire at 6:45 p.m.
Forecaster said there’s a roughly 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms in the Antelope Valley Friday, with highs forecast to be in the high 90s with winds coming out of the west.
It will be mostly clear and windy with lows in the mid-70s Friday night.
